Reptiles and Amphibians

I took the boys to a Reptile and Amphibian program at Elkhart Public Library. We've seen this presentation before, but I still feel like I learn many things each time I go! I was taking notes on scrap pieces of paper and it helped me on my Indiana Master Naturalist test the next day.

Andy from Elkhart County Parks and Recreation presented the program after a craft turtle time with the librarian. The librarian was so nice to pull a huge selection of books on reptiles and amphibians for the kids to check out. Andy brought in lots of props to show the differences between reptiles and amphibians. It was very hands on. He also brought many specimens, such as a two headed snake, eggs casings, and lots of live animals to look at and examine. Excellent program!
