Visiting Naturalist Cheri Collins from the Eleanor Buck Wolf Nature Center will be leading this hands-on lesson on ID’ing the skulls and bones of native animals. Using her lessons and the tools we provide, you’ll learn how key out the skulls and bones at Goodwin, on the trail, and in your own collections.
