Urban Mammals

Please note that for this event, both the lecture and Q&A will be live and recorded.

As human dominated areas continue to grow, natural wildlife habitat is fragmented. However, some wildlife species survive and even thrive in urban areas. Come join us to find out why some mammals may live well in cities while others do not! We will identify some common urban mammals and how they differ from their rural counterparts. Also, we will discuss what we can do to coexist with Austin’s urban-dwelling furry creatures! 

Science Under the Stars has gone virtual! This semester all SUTS activities will be online, but we encourage you to participate outdoors under the stars in your backyard! (If wifi allows for it, of course.) This month’s schedule is as follows:

  • May 6th: Links to the kids activities and live online lecture/Q&A will be posted here and as an event on our Facebook page.
  • May 13th, 7:00pm CDT: Live online lecture and Q&A with the speaker!

Science Under the Stars is a free public outreach lecture series based in Austin, Texas.
