Free Events: Skins & Skulls

Sunday, Jan 27, 2019 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Chico Masonic Family Center (Map)

Description

We’ll open a treasure box on loan to us from Lassen Volcanic National Park and explore a brand new educational set of over 20 demonstration skulls and pelts. Gently feel the sharp teeth of a large predator, the tip of an eagle’s beak, a beaver’s buck tooth, or a deer’s grinding molars. Skulls are beautiful in form and function. Each skull is full of clues as to what the animal eats and how it makes its living. Our high quality animal pelts include the thick fur of river otter and beaver, the silky fur of bobcat and rabbit as well as that of a rare red fox and more.
