There will be four programs beginning on Monday, July 20th at 11:30am with “Wild World of Reptiles”. This will be followed by “Leaping Lizards” on Wednesday, July 29th at 11:30am, “Terrific Turtles” on Tuesday, August 3rd at 11:30am, and “Sensational Snakes” on Monday, August 10th at 11:30am.
Registration can be done by emailing email@example.com or calling the library at 508 548-4709.
Throughout the series, children will learn answers to questions like: Can turtles really leave their shells like they do in cartoons? What is the difference between a turtle and a tortoise? How do the differences in lizards’ help them to survive around the world and even here? How do critters hiss without using their mouths? What should you do if you see a snake? Each session will include a slideshow of Ms. Marzolf’s photographs and a presentation of live animals, which Marzolf keeps at her home. During each presentation there will be time for participants to enter questions in the Zoom chat box.
Joy Marzolf began working with reptiles when she attended Carleton College in Minnesota. She went on to work with animals at the Oregon Zoo like sea otters and polar bears. Her work with the zoo led Marzolf to work with a company that does educational live reptile programs for schools and state fairs from Arizona to Alaska starting in the early 2000s.
This program is made possible through a grant from Massachusetts Library Services.
