The Life of River Otters

North American Otters were almost eradicated from Massachusetts in the late 19th century due to the fur trade, and industrial pollution in the rivers.  As our towns and cities have cleaned up their acts, otters have begun to return.  Since they are mainly nocturnal, and very wary of humans, they can be very difficult to see.  Join us for this free presentation and come behind the scenes of an otter family’s lives and learn how we can protect both them and their habitat.

Friday August 2nd, 11-12pm in the Maccario Room.
