Save These Dates

Mark your calendar so you won't miss a thing this summer!

Read This!

Enjoy some book selections from the renowned author Sy Montgomery. Ms. Montgomery has scuba dived with octopuses in the Pacific, swum with piranhas, electric eels and dolphins in the Amazon, worked in a pit crawling with 18,000 snakes in Manitoba, and handled a wild tarantula in French Guinea-all to research thirty books. During this time she developed deep connections with these amazing creatures. We are hosting Sy Montgomery, August 6 (virtual event, registration required). This will sure to be an exciting program and we hope you can join us.
