6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
via Zoom
 
Are you noticing more squirrel activity this time of year? Maybe you’re seeing them chasing each other up and down trees, or darting across the roads? Most of this activity is due to the start of breeding and nesting season for our mammals! Join Thomas Memorial Library and Center for Wildlife via Zoom to learn about one of our most overlooked wild neighbors, the gray squirrel. Meet “Skeeter,” the Center for Wildlife’s non-releasable gray squirrel education ambassador and prepare to have your heart won over.

The Center for Wildlife is nestled at the base of Mount Agamenticus, in Cape Neddick, Maine, where for 33 years their facility has treated over 50,000 injured and orphaned wild animals and presented programming to thousands of community members annually.  
 
Center for Wildlife proudly serves the New England region, typically managing 2,000 patients each year (native wildlife injured because of vehicle collisions, domestic pets, pollution, fishing lines, oil spills, and other human-related causes), representing more than 190 species of birds, reptiles, and mammals. The clinic is run out of a modest 1,200 square foot building and a campus of over 45 outdoor enclosures, all of which can be filled with patients during the peak season of April – October. The goal of their wildlife clinic is to medically treat and provide rehabilitation to injured wild animals so that they can be released back to the wild where they belong.
