The Orcas Senior Center presents “Meeting of the Minds – Newts” from 1-2 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19.

Newts are some very special amphibians! Join ecologist Christian Oldham, from Kwiaht – Center for the Historical Ecology of the Salish Sea, for a presentation about native Rough-Skinned newts. Hands-on live animal interaction will be available. The presentation is free and all are welcome.

“The Meeting of the Minds” series of lectures continues at Orcas Senior Center. This season, in partnership with Friends of Moran, we offer a series of presentations about our island home.
