Breaking Out of Their Shells with Tanglewood Nature Center! Saturday, 11/20 beginning at 11am!

Join us for another exciting in-person presentation of Wild Animal Encounters at the library with Tanglewood Nature Center.

This week’s theme is Oviparous Animals: Breaking Out of their Shells!

Of course Owls and Hawks were hatched from Eggs, but attendees will learn that salamanders, turtles, snakes, and insects also emerge from shells. Come see the animals and take home a fascinating project! What IS an owl pellet anyway?

All are welcome, no sign up required.
