Getting in touch with nature

— image credit:

Katelynn Overton, with Nature Vision, above, constructs a food web with the children attending the Wetland Wildlife presentation at the Auburn Library. The food web shows the relationship between predator and prey.

It was all part of the library’s 2008 summer reading program.

Overton showed slides of plants and animal that are found in wetlands and watersheds.

There were hands-on

exhibits, including a beaver pelt and beaver skull.

The group also discussed the impact of wetlands

on the environment.

The summer reading program at the library

will continue through

Aug. 7.
