November 19 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Date: November 19, 2022

Time: 10:30 a.m.

Location: Anne Elizabeth Suratt Nature Center at Walnut Creek Preserve

Speaker: Fred Weisbecker


Fred will discuss skull identification and provide hands on learning with many different skulls. He will teach us how to carefully gather and preserve these natural artifacts and to use skulls found on a trail or in the woods as a clue to the life and likely causes of death of the creature whose skull we find.

Polk County is currently in the “Low” COVID-19 Community Level and the CDC’s current recommendations are:


*Walnut Creek Preserve is private property and guests are only allowed on the property by invitation (a planned event or scheduled group).  Thank you.
