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. This program is FREE to attend.

Be sure to double-check the schedule of your favorite public library in September and beyond so that you don’t miss out on Animal Tales!
