July 2023 Lake Mansfield:
Each year we reach out to Tom Tyning so that kids and their families can gain new insights into the wild array of creatures that are to be found in our ponds, forests, and fields.
Tom never disappoints and he never comes alone! His fellow travelers may include salamanders, frogs, toads and snakes who are introduced one by one so that every kid (of every age! ) can have a rare opportunity of seeing these remarkable creatures and learning about their life histories.
This is how fears are dispelled and fascination is cultivated. This is how we can connect our families to the natural worlds.
