Nobody better to teach us about wildlife in the Blue Ridge than Carlton Burke, a naturalist, educator, and licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator. This lunch hour series will introduce you to a different animal neighbor each month. Learn more about mountain wildlife species and what you can to do protect and preserve them.

This Wednesday at 1, get to know the Barred Owl, whose hooting call, “Who cooks for you? Who cooks for you-all?” is a classic sound of old forests and treed swamps. Special appearance from Harry, a prominent member of Burke's "flock" of live animal ambassadors.

*Instructions for joining via Zoom will be included in your confirmation email following registration. A recording of the class will be made available to registered participants for a limited period following the session for review and to provide access to those with scheduling conflicts.
