Urban scavengers, commonly found in our city, play a significant role in the local ecosystem. Join Robin Sanchez on this fun "scavenger" hunt to gain an understanding of various urban species and identify their habitats through a Critter Scene Investigation (CSI)!  Appropriate for ages 8-12. All participants must be accompanied by adults.

Robin Sanchez’s Youth Naturalist Programs are generously supported by the Greenacre Foundation and Fort Tryon Park.
