They’re prickly but not terribly pesky, and while their faces might look cuddly, porcupines are actually quite hardy. Tonight, at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center, Anchorage-based Alaska Department of Fish and Game Area Wildlife Biologist Jessy Coltrane will prove just how hardy these creatures are with her lecture on some of their winter survival secrets.
The lecture is one of many in the Friday Fireside lecture series.
Lectures begin at 6:30 p.m. and again at 8 p.m. They are free and open to the public.
