WHAT'S GOING ON AT MOSQUITO HILL NATURE CENTER:

Memory Cafe'

The world of snakes is fascinating! Snakes get a bad rap most of the time, but are so important in the natural world. We'll learn about our native snakes and how we should appreciate them more. 

Memory Cafés are for those experiencing early stage dementia, mild memory loss or cognitive impairment, and for family and friends of those affected. It’s a great opportunity for lively discussions, information gathering, refreshments, camaraderie, and lots of creative fun thrown in.

No charge.
