Wild Philly: The Extraordinary Nature of Our Backyard

7:00 – 8:30 PM

Mike Weilbacher, Naturalist, Environmental Educator, and Author of Wild Philly

America’s sixth largest city is home to an amazing abundance of surprising wildlife: the peregrine falcon, the fastest animal on earth; the coyote, a recent immigrant to Wild Philly; the beaver, once vanished and now making an astonishing comeback; and more. Meet some of the region’s featured creatures and the places you can go to see the diversity of wildlife. Learn the largest threats to nature and the ways you can help.
