Who makes a meal with something so Pokey!

Naturalist Mike Bardgett will discuss the porcupine in his presentation “Porcupines: A Sticky Situation” at the February edition of Animal House on Thursday, Feb. 11 at 4 p.m. at the Werner Wildlife Museum. “Anyone who has ever wondered why porcupine quills stick so firmly into an inquisitive dog’s nose or if any predator in the animal kingdom is ever hungry enough to make a meal off something so pokey, will find out at our next Animal House,” said India Hayford, museum assistant. The guest speaker will be Mike Bardgett, former wildlife biology technician and firefighter with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, and now the Werner’s volunteer naturalist. According to Hayford, Bardgett will talk about the habits, habitat and idiosyncrasies of the porcupine. Animal House is free and open to the public and takes place in the Wyoming Room of the Werner Wildlife Museum, which is located at 405 E. 15th Street.
