Salamanders. Fireflies. Fish. And bears.
The Lil ‘Buds Summer Learning Series invited kids ages 3 to 6 accompanied by an adult to Chapman State Park to learn about several different creatures.
The program was a collaboration of Chapman and Youngsville Public Library. Library director Kristy Wallace and Chapman environmental education specialist Jen Moore provided information and activities.
“Each day included Kristy reading a story or two,” Moore said. âI was leading an activity related to the theme of the day. Then we had crafts for the children at the end.
“Kristy also made bags that families can take home with more info and crafts,” Moore said.
