As the National Wildlife Federation’s naturalist, I’m very excited to be teaching a free online class with our partner Varsity Tutors all about “scary” wildlife species that you might encounter in your yard or neighborhood—that are really not so scary once you get to know them.

The class is for all ages class and takes place Monday, April 26 from 7-8 PM EST. You’ll learn why species from bees to snakes to spiders are actually animals you want to have around as neighbors. I’ll be answering your wildlife questions live afterward. Sign up here.
