Make New Friends

Elementary school students made some new friends during an in-school visit from the Quogue Wildlife Refuge on Feb. 11.

During the event, Brendan Dickson, an environmental educator with the Quogue Wildlife Refuge Center, introduced the students to several animal species including a corn snake, tarantula, owl and bearded dragon.

Aside from having the opportunity to pet the various animals, students learned about their habitats, life cycles and prey.
