VANDALIA – What better environmental teachers for children than animals themselves? At the Dayton Metro Library, children can learn about animals, conservation and the environment with educators from Wild Hearts Zoo, who are bringing animal ambassadors to 10 Branch Libraries this summer. Participants of all ages will learn about hawks, reptiles and mammals as the zookeeper discusses their significance in our environment and their protection through conservation.
Wild Hearts Zoo will visit the Vandalia branch library on Saturday, July 9 at 10 a.m.
Wild Hearts Zoo, based in Lewisburg, Ohio, is a community-oriented organization striving to provide low-impact educational experiences of nature, ecology and conservation through an interactive approach. Wild Hearts founder Amanda Dalton is a professional member of the Zoological Association of America.
The programs are free. Families and all ages are welcome.
Attendance at these and other Dayton Metro Library programs counts toward Summer Challenge Goals. For more information, visit the Events Calendar at DaytonMetroLibrary.org or call (937) 463-BOOK.
