Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary

Friday, October 19, 2007

7:00 a.m. - 8:00 a.m.

Troy Bauman, South Central Library System, is working on the final details for a fantastic field trip to the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary, highlighting:

  • An early morning bird hike, guided by Troy's mother and father, Ty Baumann, who is the director of the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary in Green Bay and has served in that position for over 30 years.  (Limited to the first 50 registrants)
  • Animal education programs offered by a team of naturalists using raptors, small mammals, reptiles, etc.

In addition, the sanctuary staff often go to libraries and similar places to encourage education about animals and natural resources through reading and hands-on experiences, and this can be a great way to get kids and families into libraries year round.
