‘Skulls From Near & Far’ — RWP Natural History

(9.29) “Have you ever struggled to identify a skull you found in the woods?” This being Providence, they should probably have specified animal skull. (Hmm, this is either a Cathartes aura or Joey Onions.) Thanks to the museum for teeing that one up, but make no mistake, this event is the real deal. (Facebook event.)

Come to the museum and learn the major features that distinguish mammal skulls, with particular attention paid to ones most commonly found in our area. After a brief presentation we will take a look at examples of the skulls we have discussed, as well as the more exotic specimens from the museum collection, from bears and big cats to otters and skunks. Bring your curiosity and any skull questions you may have!

Program fee: $3, includes museum admission/free for museum members. Children must be age 12 and older. Preregistration is preferred. Call 401.680.7221 or email mnhinfo@providenceri.gov for more information.

$3, 10am to noon, Sunday, September 29, Museum of Natural History, RWP, 1000 Elmwood Avenue, (directions)
