Chewonki at the Gardens: Mammals of Maine

August 24, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

This exciting and interactive program introduces audiences to our native warm-blooded vertebrates: Maine mammals. Each participant can study a mounted animal and observe its characteristics, such as teeth, feet, and fur. We use these observations as clues to understanding each mammal’s adaptations, niche, and habitat. A collection of skulls, study skins, and other specimens complements a discussion of adaptations and the role each animal plays in the food web. This program also provides a living example of a non-releasable wild mammal.

Chewonki’s single-day naturalist residency programs are free to all guests with admission. This is the first of three days, all focusing on different parts of Maine’s native biodiversity.
