An Introduction to Wildlife Rehabilitation @ Bonnyvale Environmental Education Center
Jun 24 @ 2:00 pm

Yes, wildlife rehabilitators get to raise orphaned wild animals, but becoming a rehabilitator takes much more than an interest in wildlife—it takes time, money, training, equipment, and a license from the Department of Fish & Wildlife. Did I mention time? If you think your passion runs deep enough, join local rehabilitators Fred Homer and Patti Smith to learn more.Sponsored by BEEC

Discover Dragonflies with Bob Engel @ Sweet Pond State Park
Jul 22 @ 2:00 pm

Dragonflies were among the pioneers of flight on planet Earth, and once stalked their prey on wings that were a foot long. Though smaller in size, modern dragonflies still inspire imaginative names: spreadwings, dancers, bluets, forktails, sprites, darners, snaketails, emeralds, skimmers, meadowhawks. . . Bob Engel will lead a walk to introduce these primitive, yet sophisticated, insects. Bob will teach participants to recognize the different groups and species of dragonflies.
Many good resources exist for those interested in learning to identify dragonflies, so after Bob’s introduction, anyone who catches the dragonfly “bug” can continue to learn.
Bob Engel is a Professor Emeritus from Marlboro College where he taught biology and environmental science for over 30 years. Sponsored by BEEC
