AT VAIL PUBLIC LIBRARY
NRO musicians will perform at libraries for audiences of eager readers.
All ages are welcome at these educational events.
Life in the Sea Workshop
Children explore different ocean ecosystems and learn about the plants and animals that live there. Classifying creatures from sharks to sponges gives them a taste of ocean diversity. In Whales
to Scale, they compare shark and whale teeth and measure the size of these incredible predators. Hands-on activities teach the interconnectedness of an ocean food web and the consequences of overfishing.
