An educational program which introduces the audience to the fascinating world of animals.

Do you ever wonder about the lives of awesome amphibians or rowdy reptiles? Want to meet some exciting animal friends?

Join us when professional Naturalist Jerry Walls brings his traveling educational program to your local library to learn all about the amazing world of animals.

Depending on the day you might get to see reptiles, birds, bugs, or amphibians, and there may even be opportunities to interact with the animals! 

This program is primarily geared towards ages 5 to 11 but families are definitely welcome.
