Children’s librarians, Cheryl Thomas and Phoebe DeSantis, present stories about bears. Children will participate in creative and interactive activities about bears and learn about how they survive. The program encourages children to explore animal science and is for young people in grades 1 – 3.

Growing up Wild

Wild About Bears is a program adapted from the Growing Up WILD program offered by the Texas Department of Wildlife and the Council for Environmental Education. Growing Up WILD is an early childhood education program that builds on children’s sense of wonder about nature and invites them to explore wildlife and the world around them. Through a wide range of activities and experiences, Growing Up WILD provides an early foundation for developing positive impressions about the natural world and lifelong social and academic skills.
