About the class

Animals are all around us—and that’s a good thing! While your first instinct may be fear each time you see a snake, spider, or bee, those animals are much more likely to help you than hurt you. Join the National Wildlife Federation’s David Mizejewski to bust the myths that make you afraid of certain kinds of wildlife and to explore the many ways that the critters you encounter out in nature, your neighborhood, or even your own backyard are more helpful than harmful.
