This resource was created by Von Scully and Kate Reilly.
During the month of October, we will explore the world of NJ’s creepy-crawly fauna and flora and things that go bump, squawk, grunt, (or even stay silent) in the night and day!
Also, remember to check out Duke Farms Eventbrite for a wide array of virtual programs to learn more about NJ’s best bears, bats, bobcats, beautiful amphibians, reptiles, as well as other important oozy critters and the concern about climate change’s already negative impact on their future.
As we open the door to October…
"Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many and quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
“Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door-
Only this, and nothing more.”
Slimy, oozy ooey-gooey! The stars of this resource are boneless wrigglers that have squirmed their way into our hearts with their fascinating anatomy, behavior, and vital role in our planet's food web! Learn about the likes of leopard slugs, snails, caddisfly, and more. Remember, non-cuddly and less-than-cute critters want love, too.
