Lakeside Nature Center

 

Animal of the Month

Each month a different animal is featured in the exhibit area of the Nature Center.  Sometimes we concentrate on a single species like the coyote, sometimes the stars are a group like Insects or songbirds, sometimes the exhibit teaches about specific animal characteristics like beaks or skulls, sometimes we discuss behaviors, sometimes the emphasis might be on a natural community - but it's always interesting.
