Animal Embassy: NATURE ROCKS!
Thursday, July 12th 10:30 am
at The Rondout Municipal Center on Lucas Avenue
(the old Rosendale school)

This educational and entertaining program will take families around the world with a unique group of rescued and adopted animals, representing diverse habitats. While exploring these habitats, we will discover some of the musical instruments used by people indigenous to these regions such as a rain stick, maracas or a drum. We’ll also discuss examples of animals that contribute to nature’s symphony including song birds, chirping crickets and chorus frogs. Families will meet incredible live Animal Ambassadors such as South American Chinchillas, North American Spring Peepers, a Cuban Tree Frog, an African Tortoise, an African Lovebird or Australian Parrot, an African Monitor, and a Boa from Madagascar.
