Children had an opportunity to learn about local wildlife and other critters during presentations this week at the Salmon Arm branch of the Okanagan Regional Library.
On Wednesday, July 18, B.C. Conservation Officer Tanner Beck did a presentation on how to identify wildlife and how to react during an encounter, particularly ones involving predators.
The following day, July 19, Taryn Schmid brought a few friends, Pinky the corn snake and ferrets Squirrel and Pretzel, to the library for a show-and-tell presentation. The highlight for the kids in attendance was being able to pet the ferrets and touch the snake.
