Italian Wall Lizards: Our New Neighbors
Sunday, January 26, 10:30 am
Italian wall lizards are the only species of lizard that can be found living on Long Island. Released from a pet shop in Hempstead, they’ve made their way much farther west and east, and we can expect them to continue until they reach The End. They are highly adaptable and show evidence of quick evolution. How do these lizards survive the winter? Do they harm our native wildlife? How do they spread? Come learn all about these fascinating little creatures. Registration is $10 for adults and $8 for kids.
