Discovery Place Nature, 1658 Sterling Road
There are about fifty different species of mammals that have been found right here in Mecklenburg County.
Did you know that there are only three characteristics unique to mammals?The three characteristics are mammary glands, hair and three middle ear bones. Mammals also have many unique qualities that no other creatures have. The diversity of this animal group never ceases to amaze us.
Please join us as we welcome Marvin Bouknight, Director and Naturalist at Discovery Place Nature. Through stories and humor, Marvin will highlight certain species and discuss the Piedmont and urban habitat, along with man’s impact on their activity.
