Alien Invaders!

At the Huntington Branch Library on Saturday, 10/18 at 11AM.This program, presented by Animal Embassy, will teach children about “aliens species” – animals that were once family pets, but somehow were released into the wild, the problems they face and the problems they create. Some of the animals that will be visiting us include a python, parakeet, toad, iguana, and turtle. Please register beginning October 1 for this educational program for children in grades K-5.
