The Amazing World of Birds

On Tuesday May 22 from 4 – 5 p.m. visit New Pond Farm’s Barred Owl, Bernard, and discover cool adaptations that allow owls to fly silently, to see at night, and to digest meals of mice and frogs! Become nature detective and, using mounted specimens, figure out why birds look the way they do and what adaptations help them to survive.

This children’s program is $8 per New Pond Farm member child and $12 per non-member child.

Registration is required. Please register online or by calling (203) 938-2117.

Bobcats in our Backyard!

We are welcoming back one of our favorite wildlife biologists, Melissa Ruszczyk, from the State of CT DEEP Wildlife Division who will share information about the work that is being done within our state regarding bobcats. “As top predators, it is important to monitor their population because their presence affects many other species including competing predators, prey species, and animals in direct competition with prey” -Brandon Bernhardt, CT DEEP Wildlife Division.

This program for Adults as well as students in Middle and High School is $5 per student and $10 per New Pond Farm member adult and $15 per non-member adult.

Registration is required. Please register online or by calling (203) 938-2117.
