Saturday Family Science July 11 Predator and Prey

Predator and Prey
Saturday, July 11, 10am
with Aemelia Thompson

Trying to survive out in the wild can be a tough job for any animal, whether you’re a fox looking for a mouse to snack on, or the mouse hiding from the fox! Predatory animals have to hunt other animals for their food and their prey must be smart to avoid them. Both have their place in the ecosystem. Come learn more about the importance of predator and prey at this Saturday Family Science program.

Join Aemelia Thompson at 10am on Saturday, June 6th at 10am for the live stream portion of Virtual Saturday Science.
