Saturday, November 12
6 - 8 pm
$30 member / $45 nonmember
Ages 16 and up (must be 21 to drink)

Join Amy Baird from the University of Houston for a night celebrating our furry friends – mammals. You’ll enjoy wine, beer, cheese, and coffee while you learn about what makes mammals special and why, even though they live all around us, they are so hard to see. You’ll get an introduction to our local species and get up close and personal to real mammal specimens. After learning about these wonderful creatures, you’ll head out on a night hike to look for mammals and other nocturnal animals.

Class schedule: about 1 hour of indoor activity and 1 hour of gentle outdoor walking. Wear walking shoes and weather-appropriate clothing. Hike guides will be carrying flashlights, but the trails will be dark.

Instructor bio: Dr. Amy Baird is an Assistant Professor of Biology at the University of Houston Downtown. She does research with mammals of all shapes and sizes, from bowhead whales to bats and mice.
