Some things in nature are simply frightening. Just because something seems scary, however, doesn’t mean that it is harmful! Celebrate the fall season in a different way by learning about the science behind the things in nature that may scare you but are essential to their environment. Temple University Ambler EarthFest, the Temple Ambler Field Station and the Ambler Arboretum of Temple University will host The Science of Scary on Saturday, October 22, from 2 to 4 p.m. in Bright Hall in the center of campus. Register for the event at https://ambler.temple.edu/scienceofscary. All animals and insects, no matter how creepy or crawly, serve an essential purpose in their ecosystems and increase biodiversity! Gain a deeper understanding of the wonders of nature and the amazing things that may be found right in your own backyard. Connect with the world around you by learning about animals and insects such as arachnids, snakes, carnivorous plants, skunks, lizards, and “monsters” of the deep from the Academy of Natural Sciences, Elmwood Park Zoo, the Barn Nature Center, Temple’s own Sarah Naughton and her wonderful collection of tarantulas and insects, and much more!
