Animal Extravaganza at DuPont Environmental Education Center

WILMINGTON (November 15, 2014) – Meet live animals, walk with a naturalist, and take home a wild craft at the DuPont Environmental Education Center (DEEC). Bring your family and learn about how our daily decisions impact the environment and how to protect wildlife habitats. The November Animal Extravaganza is free to the public and will take place on Saturday, November 15, from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the DuPont Environmental Education Center (1400 Delmarva Lane, Wilmington, DE 19801).

This open house is a great opportunity for young children, siblings, and parents to come out and learn more about the wildlife around them. Highlight activities include: interacting with live animals, making a craft, walking along the boardwalk that extends into the marsh, and dip-netting.

The DuPont Environmental Education Center is where the city, river, and marsh meet on the Wilmington Riverfront and is a favorite family attraction open to the public year-round. It offers free admission, as well as interactive indoor and outdoor exhibits on natural and cultural history. It is owned by the Riverfront Development Corporation of Delaware and operated by the Delaware Nature Society. The Center is on the edge of the 212-acre Russell W. Peterson Urban Wildlife Refuge that supports over 200 species of mammals, fish, amphibians and birds.
