Our Tropical Connections

  • Wednesday, January 24, 2018
  • 10:00am - 12:00pm

North Carolina may be separated from the tropics by several hundred miles, yet we remain connected in many ways. Some of the connections are obvious like the winter migration of many North Carolina birds. But other connections have more tangled and intriguing paths. How does a sick patient in our state benefit from the poison of a tropical frog? How did World War II contribute to the success of the red invasive fire ant in North Carolina? We will determine what actually makes an area tropical, and why heat or steamy jungles don’t always play a role. Join us as we learn all about our tropical connections and meet some live creatures and intriguing plants that call the tropics their home!

Note: Parents do not need to attend the program with their child but do need to remain in the Museum.
