Under normal circumstances, our Park Naturalists and volunteers come to your local library each month to share a story about a native animal and a related craft or activity. However, with the ever-changing circumstances involving the COVID-19 pandemic, Animal Tales maybe become Virtual Animal Tales on any given month.
Please check our Facebook page or your local public library in advance of each month’s program for updates.
