Chewonki Animal Adaptations: Survive in the wild

UNION — Webbed feet, camouflaged fur, or spines on the back are all amazing ways that animals use adaptations to survive in the wild everyday. Chewonki will visit Vose Library, 392 Common Road, Saturday, July 13, at 10 a.m.

In this fun-filled hour, children will learn about adaptations, try on fun costumes, and see firsthand how three live non-releasable animals have adaptations that help them thrive in their specific habitats. After the presentation, children will be encouraged to create their own animal with adaptations that they make up.

This program is free and open to the public. For more information, call Vose Library at 785-4733.
