Previewing the Schiele Museum’s special summer events

From June through August, the museum is hosting daily presentations to highlight various animals.

GASTONIA, N.C. (QC Life) - For over 60 years, the Schiele Museum has been one of the Charlotte area’s premier locations to explore the world of natural science.

One of the keys to the museum’s sustained success? You never know what to expect.

That variety is no different this summer, as there are multiple, limited-time events taking place at the museum.

From June through August, Schiele is hosting daily “keeper talks” that include animal feedings and “Farm Friends” presentations to highlight the property’s barnyard buddies.

On top of those seasonal opportunities, the museum is also bringing in a Virginia opossum named Penny and a tenrec (a small mammal from Madagascar) named Thistle as well.

Schiele’s lead animal keeper, Veronica D’Amelio, and marketing coordinator Tiffani Stewart dropped by with some special guests to fill us in on the museum’s summer plans.
