Hooray for Summers Spent Outside and In the Library
With school starting for many area students tomorrow, we wanted to wish all of our community's children a school year fueled by curiosity and wonder!
In that vein, thank you to those who came out to one of our kid-focused programs this summer, including those held at local libraries in Walpole, Springfield, and Chester. Our summer library visits play an important role in enabling us to spread the magic of the natural world with more families.
The lineup of topics and offerings differed slightly by library; each were free to the public and led by our Nature Educator Rachel Brown. The programs were geared to kids and included "Incredible Insects", "Benefits of Bats", and "Slithery and Scaly". Each session began with a presentation by Brown, followed by an opportunity for discussion and handling of specimens, before ending with a craft inspired by the session's star creature.
We were thrilled to offer 9 visits to these three aforementioned libraries this summer. We are very grateful to the generous support of TransCanada, who sponsored this invaluable community outreach program.
Thank you again to TransCanada and everyone who welcomed us to their neck of the woods!
