Episode 202: Wild Neighbors



This episode focuses on our wild neighbors – the animals that share space with and around us. While many people may want to create backyard habitats for wildlife, others may be uncertain about living near wild animals and have concerns about “nuisance” neighbors. Join Wildlife Center staff to learn what steps we can take to better understand the wildlife that live around us, while minimizing interactions with our wild neighbors, to keep everyone safe in their preferred habitats.
