Desserts and Amorous Animal

Friends of Briar Bush Members - Adults ONLY


It’s Valentine’s Day, and love is in the air—for animals too. Bring a date, a group of single friends, or go stag for a unique and hilarious evening at Briar Bush Nature Center! Start the night off by tantalizing your taste buds with decadent desserts. Then Briar Bush educator and animal curator Katie Fisk will regale you with the bizarre behaviors and natural histories of amorous animals. We'll talk faking orgasms, orgies, bizarre endowments, just how DO porcupines mate, courtship methods, and yes, who really is the biggest in the animal kingdom (hint: it's not you). You'll meet some live animals up close and personal as well! This is a BYOB event.
