6/18/2022 - White Memorial Conservation Center Presents Creature Feature and Outdoor Discovery

The Southbury Public Library Youth Services department is thrilled to welcome the White Memorial Conservation Center back live and in person for two programs.

White Memorial Conservation Center: Creature Feature – Wednesday, July 6 at 1 pm in the Kingsley Room. Registration required.

What makes a mammal a mammal? Or a reptile a reptile? How about an amphibian an amphibian? Scientists have grouped animals based on similar features. Using natural props, animal mounts, and LIVE animals, we will break down the characteristics of several major animal groups. This program is intended for children of all ages. Families welcome.

White Memorial Conservation Center: Outdoor Discovery – Friday, July 22 at 1 pm on the library grounds. Registration required.

No matter what “green space” we’re in, you can find nature! We’ll lead participants in several fun physical activities, including a seek-and-find mission to spy natural items, from cones to acorns to feathers to live critters! Participants will truly get to be immersed in their outdoor environment, wherever it is, while learning some fun facts and ID tips about the natural items all around them.
