Skulls and Skeletons at New Quarter Park

Come to New Quarter Park for the inside story on this York County park's mammal inhabitants when Les Lawrence, Historic Rivers Chapter Virginia Master Naturalists, shows how to identify them by their skulls and skeletons. During the Saturday, June 10, Walk & Talk program beginning at 10 am, Lawrence will display a variety of mammal skeletons found at the park and other local habitats. Visitors will learn how skulls and bones tell us how animals capture prey, prowl the forests, and find their place in the circle of life in eastern Virginia.

New Quarter Park is located at 1000 Lakeshead Drive between the Queen's Lake neighborhood and Cheatham Annex. For directions or more information, visit www.yorkcounty.gov/ParksandRec or call New Quarter Park at 757-890-5840.
