What lives in your backyard? You will meet a variety of animals that might live in your neighborhood right here on Long Island. This presentation will help you to realize the importance of looking after our resident wildlife and how we can be better neighbors.  Drop by from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm and see a Box turtle, an opossum, a rabbit, a screech owl, and maybe a surprise guest or two.
