Species Spotlight

Species Spotlight workshops are now Virtual!

In partnership with Herp Haven, a Maine based reptile rescue and sanctuary, join us as we shed light on exotic pets. Each workshop covers the extensive care that goes into having an exotic animal as a pet. It will go in depth on one specific animal and include:

  • daily care, including feeding, cleaning and grooming
  • proper habitats
  • safe handling
  • animal behavior and body language

Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the animal first-hand and ask questions. Young attendees will be given a fun, educational project to complete during the session. The project will be geared towards children ages 9-13 but all ages are welcome to come and learn.

Workshops are free and open to the public.
