Rows of house and apartments, or skyscrapers and office buildings might not seem likely places for wildlife, but they can be! Join us as we explore the plants and animals that are often hidden in plain sight in the urban jungle. Campers will sharpen their observation skills looking for Red-tailed Hawks, learn why we often see sycamore trees downtown, and discover other wildlife adapted to living within our man-made habitats. 

Registration information: Registration required. Please visit the Summer Camp Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.
