  4. Let’s face it, some things in nature are just plain scary…or at least pretty icky.   But just because something seems scary, doesn’t mean that it is! Celebrate the fall season in a different way by learning about the science behind the things in nature that may scare you but serve an important role in their environment.   All animals and insects, no matter how creepy or crawly, serve an essential purpose in their ecosystems and increase biodiversity! Connect with the world around you by learning about skunks, spiders, predatory birds, snakes, sharks, storms, toads and carnivorous plants to name a few!   The event will also include fall snacks, crafts and more!   The Science of Scary is being held in partnership with the Academy of Natural Sciences, Barn Nature Center, Elmwood Park Zoo, Franklin Institute, New Jersey Academy for Aquatic Sciences, the Philadelphia Insectarium and Butterfly Pavilion and local falconer Tom Stanton.   Part of Temple Ambler’s EarthFest Presents series of events, the Science of Scary is a family-friendly free event designed to help learners and citizen scientists of all ages gain a deeper understanding of the wonders of nature and the amazing things that may be found right in their own backyards. What will you discover?   For more information, contact or 267-468-8108
