Animal Embassy at Liberty Public Library

LIBERTY - On Thursday, July 6th at 6:30 PM Animal Embassy will be bringing their Nature's Architects program to the Liberty Public Library.
Be amazed by the talents of a diverse group of Animal Ambassadors that build complicated structures. In nature, many creatures contribute to the success of others by building homes and creating places to rear their young. We'll study the architectural feats of nest building, burrow making and web spinning as well as how structures created by some animals help others to survive. We'll explore how we too can help our wild neighbors by building bird boxes and frog ponds.
Library patrons will meet live Animal Ambassadors such as a Red- Foot Tortoise, a Monk Parakeet, a Mandarin Duck, a Chilean Rose-Haired Tarantula, a Ferret, an Argentinian Horned Frog, an African Hedgehog or African Porcupine, and a Flower Mantis.
We will also see artifacts & photographs representing one of nature's most prolific builders, the Beaver, along with Bird & Paper Wasp nests. And together, we'll draw parallels with our own lives while exploring how we can build a better world!
This program is free and open to the public. More details are available at the library's website at or at For more information, please contact the library at 292-6070.
