Our Park Naturalists come to your local library each month to share a story about a native animal and a related craft or activity with preschool through upper elementary age children.
Turkey vultures soar on the balmy air, looking for their next stinky feast. These birds don’t hunt―they like their food to be already dead, and their eating habits serve a very important ecological role. Vultures are part of nature’s clean-up crew. In her signature poetic, energetic style, acclaimed nature writer April Pulley-Sayre introduces young readers to the world of the turkey vulture. The gorgeous illustrations by Caldecott Honor–winning artist Steve Jenkins capture these birds in all their surprising majesty.
This program is FREE to attend, appropriate for all ages, and no advance registration is required through our office. However, due to space limitations, please call Avon Public Library at (317) 272-4818 to reserve your spot.
