Discover the world of Connecticut’s weasels and have an opportunity to interact with our own wild weasels, ferrets and otters. We’ll start with a short show on CT’s weasel species, from fishers to ermine, and then break up into two groups to create an obstacle course for our ferrets in Heckscher WILD! and enrichment for our otters. Groups will then switch so everyone can do both activities! Limited enrollment of 20 people.
