Oxbow’s Junior Explorers Presents Animals We Love to Hate Jan. 7

PORT ST. LUCIE – The hairy scorpion. The slithery snake. The giant African Bullfrog. Just reading these words makes many of us squirm or shudder in fear. Join the staff at the Oxbow Eco-Center on Saturday, Jan. 7 at 10 a.m. to meet some of the “Animals We Love to Hate” at the Junior Explorers program.

Is it true we fear what we don’t understand? This program features the animals that are most often feared and disliked: Spiders, scorpions, snakes and frogs. The Oxbow staff will dispel myths and include natural history facts which show how beneficial these animals are. Special guest speakers from Super Predators will be bringing live animals.

This Junior Oxbow Explorers program is designed for ages 5 and older accompanied by an adult. Reservations are required by calling 772-785-5833 or emailing oxbow@stlucieco.org.

Located at 5400 NE St. James Drive in Port St. Lucie, the Oxbow Eco-Center is a St. Lucie County Environmental Learning Center encompassing roughly 225 acres along the St. Lucie River. For more information visit www.oxboweco.com.
