Our Water Cycle, presented by Johnny Appleseed Metro Park District: Come to the library on Mon., July 11 at 2:00 p.m. to learn about the water cycle and how the ocean is connected to our water right here in Allen County! This family-friendly program will include engaging activities and stories about the water cycle including oceans, clouds, rain, rivers and more! Please register by July 7. Minimum 6 to hold the program. (Kids under age 8 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian over 14 years old)
Underwater Life in Our Watershed will be presented by The Quarry Farm on Tues., July 12 at 6:00 p.m. Did you know that the insects, mollusks and crustaceans—aquatic macroinvertebrates—that live in our streams and rivers are like the canaries that miners used to keep down in the coal mines? Their presence (or absence) can help us determine the health of our waterways. Meet some of these 'water canaries' when you join representatives from The Quarry Farm at the Bluffton Public Library. This program is geared for adults and teens; children welcome with a parent or guardian present. Please register by July 7.
