Come to the Rifle Branch Library on Tuesday, July 17th at 6:30 pm for Got Bats?
Location is everything when one tries to find a suitable living area and the Rifle Falls' bats are no exception! Join Terry Wise, the park naturalist for an interactive presentation on everything you wanted to know about bats but were afraid to ask. Children can create a bat craft following the presentation. This program is concurrent with Bat Bedtime Storytime- a program for preschool children.
Come to the Rifle Branch Library at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, August 1st for Hawk Quest!
This one-hour program includes a Bald or Golden Eagle, an owl, a falcon, and a free-flying hawk. Participants will learn about the importance of different raptor species, their specially-adapted tools, and their role in our ecosystems.
In this participatory program, everyone will be able to observe the unique tools of the owl, the incredible talons and six-foot wingspan of the eagle, the aerodynamic features of the falcon, and the precision flying of the hawk.
Wear your pajamas and bring your teddy bear for a fun-filled evening of stories with Smokey Bear! This special storytime will take place at the Rifle Branch Library on Tuesday, June 19th at 6:30 pm.
