Calling All Nature Nerds!

The Walnut Creek Wetland Center is hosting a nature film series beginning Tuesday, January 17 from 6:30-8 p.m. We know weekdays are hectic, so feel free to bring your dinner to eat during the movie (or make our popcorn your dinner!). January's feature film is "Raptor Force." Following the 1-hour film, we'll talk about raptors, listen to the calls of hawks and owls, and maybe even dissect an owl pellet or sort through the prey remains from a barred owl nesting box. Please register for course #199053. The cost is $1. This event is family friendly for children ages 5 and older. Register by calling the center at 919-996-2760 or online at RecLink. Please register by Sunday, January 15.

Coming February 14: Beavers, and March 14: Frogs: The Thin Green Line. Can't make it to the Film Fest? Check out our monthly themed displays, activities and make-and-take crafts. January features raptors; In February we focus on wetland rodents including groundhogs and beavers, and March we focus on amphibians (frogs, toads and salamanders) Check us out!
