Event Details

Have you ever wondered why some of our most popular superheroes are often named after animals? A visit by a New Canaan Nature Center naturalist will give participants an up-close look at several creatures with an array of “super” qualities that makes each a “wildlife superhero” in its own right. Come discover the story behind an assortment of animal ambassadors such as an owl or hawk, chinchilla, White’s Tree Frog, King Snake, lizard, or even a hedgehog. Recommended for ages 5 and older.

Presented by New Canaan Nature Center
