Monroe Lake To Offer Programs At Bedford Public Library

Last updated on Thursday, August 30, 2012

(BEDFORD) - Monroe Lake’s interpretive staff will present four free public programs at Bedford Public Library in September.

"Urban Naturalist," on Sept. 6 at 6 p.m., is recommended for adults and teenagers. The program will look at how some animals have adapted to life in the city, occasionally leading to people-animal conflicts. It will also explore how to have a healthy relationship with birds, insects and other wildlife in an urban residential setting.

"The Monarch Migration," on Sept. 13 at 6 p.m., is recommended for both adults and children ages 10 and older. The program will focus on the annual migration of monarch butterflies to Mexico. Attendees will learn why and how the butterflies make this journey and discover how to create a monarch migration "way station."

The remaining two programs are designed for preschoolers, ages 3 to 5.

"Prints and Poo" is Sept. 12 at 10 a.m. Children will learn about signs that wild animals leave behind. The program will conclude with a special snack.

"Predator or Prey?" is Sept. 26 at 10 a.m. The program will teach kids the basics of the food web by focusing on a few native animals.

The Bedford Public Library is at 1323 K Street.
