presents: Animal Athletes

Grades K — 4

Tuesday, July 19

6:30 p.m.

Who jumps the highest? Who runs the fastest? Three animals will visit the library tonight.

Animals are truly amazing athletes. Did you know a mountain lion can leap 15 feet in the air or that a peregrine falcon can reach speeds of 240 mph? Join a naturalist from Squam Lakes Natural Science Center, along with three wild animal athletes (no mountain lions though), to learn how speed, strength, and agility help them to survive. You ’ll even be able to compare your own athletic abilities to some of New Hampshire’s wild athletes!
