Would you like to meet some amazing creatures with superpowers? Every time Mona Headen brings us her fun and informative wild animal show, we have to ask her to repeat it...so, there will be 2 presentations, back-to-back, on Tuesday, July 14. The morning show is filling quite rapidly, but there is still plenty of room in the afternoon. There will be a petting session at the end of each presentation, as time allows.
