Families are invited to join environmental educator Carl Heitmuller to learn answers to questions such as: what do rabbits eat, how do they protect themselves, and where do they nest? Meet a live rabbit from the museum’s collection. This program is recommended for adults with or without children, and children of all ages. Admission: $7/adults, $5/children. Museum members: $5/adults, $3/children. Admission fees will help care for the museum’s animals at the Wildlife Education Center in Cornwall. Visit or call 845-534-5506, ext. 204.
