Sorry folks! This program has been cancelled and will be rescheduled sometime in January or February.


Come see what Kerry Wixted has in store for us as we learn about some of Maryland’s misunderstood wildlife that play important roles in our ecosystems. From pollinating bees to predatory wasps, many misunderstood species play crucial roles behind the scenes in our lives. In addition to a fascinating lecture, Ms. Wixted will have on hand some larger mammal furs and snake skin for closer inspection…as well as a few other surprises!  

Kerry Wixted is an education and outreach specialist for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife and Heritage Service. Kerry runs several statewide programs such as Project WILD for educators and Wild Acres for backyard wildlife habitat enthusiasts. Kerry holds a B.S. degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Management from Frostburg State University and an M.S. degree in Biology from West Virginia University. We are lucky to have her!

The Natural History Society of Maryland is a volunteer-led non-profit organization, so the fee you pay will go directly to support the programs, the nature collections, and the building that make this kind of nature education possible.

Thank you for your support!
