April 8 @ 11:00 am Snakes are some of the most misunderstood creatures on the planet. Scary serpent or valuable predator? Slimy slitherer or rad reptile? Meet a few of Teatown’s snake ambassadors and make a snake finger puppet to take home.
Have you come across bones or scat on a hike and wondered which animal left it? Or found nibbled branches or tracks and tried to figure out who was there? Using Teatown’s collection of skulls, scat and signs we’ll investigate the trail left behind.
Join Charlie Roberto in one of the best places to see many species of warblers and other migrants. Meet in the Teatown parking lot to carpool at 6am or at 7:15am at Central Park West and 77th st.
