Hudson River Mammals at Beczak

Today Mikro attended a program on the mammals of the Hudson River at Beczak Environmental Educaton Center in Yonkers. The kids learned about beavers, river otters, and harbor seals, the distinctive characteristics of mammals, and how blubber keeps marine mammals warm. They got to handle a beaver chew, and made a mask of the critter of their choice. Mikro's is a harbor seal.
