Animals Up Close
Members-Only Webinar Series

Meet the Montshire critters! Join us each month for an up close look at one of the Montshire’s live animals. Ask questions and share stories in this special live webinar series just for Montshire members.

​Every month we’ll feature a different Montshire animal. Come say hi to one or all of our museum friends.

These webinars are free for Montshire Members but registration is required. A Zoom link will be sent prior to the event.

Sunday, January 31 , 4pm Leaf Cutter Ants: Celebrate the first year of our leaf cutter ant queen and colony by visiting one of the Montshire’s favorite exhibits from home. Get an up close look at soldier ants, see workers cutting leaves, and take a peek at the ants’ fungus garden.
Sunday, February 28, 4pm Crawdads: Meet the most secretive resident of our large fish tanks. Get an up close look at our crawdad — both in the water and out — as we count claws, look for gills, and see what the crawdad likes for dinner.
Sunday, March 28, 4pm Painted Turtles: Come out of your shell and say hi to the Montshire resident reptiles – the turtles! We’ll look at our painted turtles up close, examine the bones of a giant snapping turtle, and explore the shells of other common turtles found in New England.
