Saturday June 18, 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.
Join us on Saturday, June 18th for a family-friendly program about the Amazing Reptiles and Amphibians of Southeast Wisconsin. Wildlife biologist Dr. Josh Kapfer will tell us about some of the reptiles and amphibians we can find in our region, how to identify them, and what habitat needs they have. Kettle Moraine Land Trust works to preserve and protect open space not just for human enjoyment, but to provide important habitat for these special animals.
The program will run from 10:00-11:30 a.m. at Natureland Park (W8338 Territorial Rd, Whitewater, WI 53190), and will meet in the picnic shelter. The program is kid-appropriate and free, part of Kettle Moraine Land Trust’s community environmental education efforts. To learn more about our education and stewardship activities, please check out our website (URL). Kettle Moraine Land Trust is a non-profit organization and an accredited land trust serving Walworth County. Donations are welcome.
