Deussen Park Outreach: Smart Animal Series

We sure learned a lot last Tuesday at the second program in  the Smart Animal series presented by Deussen Park's Traveling Naturalist...Animals we were able to see and/or touch included a walking stick, a scorpion (colored turquoise when lit up by flashlight in the dark for us), a chameleon, a hog-nose snake and a rat too! Some of the animals we learned about were gorillas, who have the ability to learn sign language, and the squirrel who has a curious behavior of dragging snake skins around his home for  scent repellant properties to ward off predators. The next program in the series will be  "Animal Arguments" on Wednesday, March 14 at 1:30 pm during Spring Break.  "Animal Engineers" will be the last visit on Tuesday, April 18 at 1:30 pm.

North Channel Book Club

The Rosie Project by Graeme SimsionGenetic researcher and professor Don Tillman has begun The Wife Project: the perfect plan to find the perfect woman for him to marry.  Rosie Jarman does not fit the plan at all.  Rosie has a project all her own: finding her biological father. After determining that Rosie is all wrong for him, Don sets out to help her solve her mystery with often funny results.  But the more time they spend together, the more Don begins to realize that he may have underestimated Rosie's suitability.  The North Channel Book Club will meet on Wednesday, Feb. 22nd at 10 am to discuss "The Rosie Project" by Graeme Simsion.
