Do Ducks Need Suitcases?

Duck with  Suitcases

This question will be explored at the Wayne County Public Library in Honesdale on Saturday, April 11th from 12:30 to 2:00pm.

The other creatures with whom we share this planet do some remarkable things, and most do it with little negative impact on their environment. The program will include stories about some of these creatures, as well as how humans can make life easier for them. A short and easy craft activity will close out the program.

This free, family-oriented program program will be presented by Katharine Dodge of the Northeast Pennsylvania Audubon Society.

Families are encouraged to attend. Children under the age of eight should be accompanied by an adult. To reserve a spot, call the library at 570-253-1220.
