Join us on February 23rd at the LaGrange Park Library for a talk by Steve Sullivan, Senior Curator of the Peggy Notebaert Museum, who will help us understand our wild neighbors, the gray squirrel and the fox squirrel.
We see them going about their business almost everyday, but still there are interesting facts to learn about their habits, needs, behavior, and life cycles. Bring your questions and enjoy some light refreshments.
