Join us to learn about how animals make their own music to communicate! Natural History Education Company will bring live animals that utilize “Echoes and Howls” to visit the library. Wildlife exhibits include our new Red Fox Kit, popular Harris Hawk, Prairie Dogs, Red-Tailed Boa, Bullfrog, exotic invertebrates and some other special friends. This will be fun for the whole family.
There will be three shows with one at 2:30, 4:00 and 6:00 pm in the first floor meeting room on July 19th.
Please note that because of the wildlife being shared and their own special needs, these are structured programs and everyone will need to be able to sit, be quiet, listen, and follow instructions. Youth are not allowed to touch the animals. It’s always a good time and the presenters are passionate about the animals they care for.
The Natural History Educational Company of the Midsouth (NHECM) was incorporated by Bob Tarter in 2005. Apart from being a life long nature enthusiast, Bob has a degree in Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences from the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign) and spent time as a biologist for Ducks Unlimited and with the Department of Natural Resources for the State of Indiana as a wildlife researcher and biologist. Bob lives with his wife, Beth, and their son, along with the entire NHECM animal family, in Middle TN.
