Cornwall, N.Y. - On March, 26 at 9:30 a.m. or 11a.m., get a jump on spring at the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum's Outdoor Discovery Center, on Muser Drive, across from 174 Angola Road, Cornwall with Hippity Hoppity Bunnies! Join Environmental Educators to learn answers to questions such as, why do cottontail rabbits have so many babies, and where do they nest?

According to Wildlife Education Center Manager Emily Nestlerode, "A cottontail rabbit will thump the ground with its hind feet to signal to other rabbits that there is danger nearby." Then meet a domestic rabbit, create a bunny craft to take home, and weather permitting take a short guided hike in search of signs of our native rabbit the Eastern Cottontail. This program is for adults and families with children ages 2 and up. Admission- Admission- Non-members: $8/Adults, $6/Children. Museum Members: $6/Adults, $4/Children. Prepaid registration is required. Walk-ins welcome only if space allows. For online registration and more information visit or call 845-534-5506 x204.
