Have you heard of World Rat Day? This year it will be celebrated on April 4. Come out to the Kumeyaay-Ipai Center on February 23 to learn about a special kind of rat – our adorable Big-Eared Woodrat. This native is also called a ‘pack rat’ because of its love of shiny objects which it collects and takes back to the nest!  Naturalist and teacher Linda Hawley will delight young and not so young as she brings animated enthusiasm to her entertaining program!
