Mather Auditorium

This event is handicap accessible

Time Change: We are delaying the start of Winter Wildlife Day to noon. The Center for Wildlife will do their presentation at that time, so come a little early. Travel conditions should be fine by then. Not sure about sledding conditions, but be prepared.

Celebrate the wildlife of Southern Maine with long-time partners Wells Reserve, Center for Wildlife, and York County Audubon! Join us for lots of family fun with a live animal presentation, guided walk, storybook reading, critter crafts, and fun in the snow.
