The Controversial Coyote, presented by John Klein
Wednesday, November 10, 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Kirby Nature Center
The Roadrunner Cartoons made Wile E. Coyote look really silly. In reality, that could not be further from the truth. Learn about how cunning and highly adaptable these animals are and what allows them to live almost anywhere! After an indoor program, we will go outdoors and try to “talk” to them directly. Cost: Free, but registration is required. Limit 30.
Saturday, November 13, 2:00pm – 3:00pm, at Kirby Nature center.
Are you ready for some family fun with WWC? Bring your family for an adventure discovering all the interesting fossils in our dry creek bed at our Kirby Nature Center. This outdoor program will start with a short explanation by Jack Berninger, and each child will be given a special fossil at the start of the program!
Jack is an engaging trip leader who describes himself as “retired but not a tired teacher who enjoys sharing the fire of discovery and enjoyment with others”. Location: Kirby Nature Center is located at 2 Main Street, Addyston, Ohio. Cost: Free, no registration is required.
