Beginning with a hike through the nature center's woodland preserve, join Animal Embassy to search for invasive species. Learn how introduced plant and animal species are impacting our local environment. After the hike, return to the Animal Embassy building and meet several live "Alien Invaders" and learn how these animals are able to overcome the challenges of life in a foreign land, the serious problems that they create, and how Animal Embassy uses these and many other Animal Ambassadors to educate about and help prevent further alien invasions. Recommended for ages 5 and older. Space is limited. Register early by calling 203-977-6521.
