Traveling Naturalist Visits Galena Park

We had a great time Thursday  with Ms. Anne from the Nature Discovery Center learning what mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and fish have in common.  Can you guess what they have in common? ... A backbone!! Ms. Anne showed us different animal skeletons, some snake skins, a turtle’s shell, and she also brought her friends Autumn (a corn snake) and Lilly (a California white rabbit) for us to pet.
Next week we will have our friend Greg Ruhe, with Puppet Pizzazz! So get ready for an exciting show with huge, life size puppets. See you at the Community Center Thursday August 2 at 3 pm for an awesome puppet show.
