    August 27th: Nightlife: How Animals Adapt their Senses for Success in the Dark –

    More than half the animals that live on this planet are nocturnal and have adapted their senses to succeed living in a world with limited vision. This presentation will look at some of those remarkable adaptations. It will also consider how we can explore our senses of taste, touch, hearing and smell and prepare ourselves to better appreciate them in both the day and the night world. Spoiler: night sounds will be played! Karen O. Zimmermann is a Maine Master Naturalist and author of “Nightwalk, Using All Your Senses To Explore the Natural World.”
