Center for Wildlife nocturnal critters program is online Aug. 3

LEWISTON — Lewiston Public Library will host the Center for Wildlife, of Cape Neddick, at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 3, for a virtual program titled “Nature’s Nightshift.”
The program is free and open to the public, and will take place on Zoom and the library’s Facebook page. Online registration for the Zoom meeting information is required and can be found at
The program will be a presentation about nocturnal animals using the center’s live non-releasable animal ambassadors. Many common questions about how and why these animals survive in the nighttime will be answered. Attendants will also have the opportunity to see such fascinating adaptations up close and ask their own questions of the Center for Wildlife educators.
The Center for Wildlife is at the base of Mount Agamenticus, where for 33 years it has treated more than 50,000 injured and orphaned wild animals and presented programming to thousands of community members.
Center for Wildlife serves the New England region, typically managing 2,000 patients each year (native wildlife injured because of vehicle collisions, domestic pets, pollution, fishing lines, oil spills, and other human-related causes), representing more than 190 species of birds, reptiles, and mammals.
