The environmental education program titled Predators! sponsored by the Friends of Lincoln Community Forest was fun and successful. 32 people attended including 16 kids. And yes, most of them touched the snake!
Stories and explanations about predators and their prey, their life cycles, and how they hunt, eat and survive were presented by Haley Appleman of the Cable Natural History Museum in the Grand View Community Center. She brought a live hawk, a snake, and a tiger salamander and explained how they catch their prey in very different ways. Audience participation in these stories and explanations made the learning interesting and fun!
This was the first of four wildlife education programs that will be sponsored by the FLCF. Funding was provided by the Four Cedars Environmental Fund and the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation.
Keep a look-out for the next program which will be held in early December
