"It was a great program"

 JULY 26th 10:30p.m.
     Randy Baker has over 25 years of experience teaching natural history and history to people of all ages. As an ex-teacher and as a highly trained naturalist Randy understands what it takes to hold the attention of viewers that range from preschool children to post-graduate adults. Randy's highly energetic and professional style of presenting scientific and historical information has resulted in his receiving numerous state wide and national awards. 
   Here are some photographic highlights of Jim's Program held at the Gazebo on July 26, 2008.
Jim brought some of his famous Michigan Salamanders. He has almost all of the ones present in Michigan and we loved learning about them.



Yes, even mom learned something about salamanders today!

Jim McGrath of Nature Discoveries Returns
with more “Creatures” for the kids to see
and touch.

  

 The Michigan Wildlife Sampler format calls on Nature Discovery to choose which wildlife species to feature. 
   Since they are especially renowned for their live reptiles and amphibians, some of these are always incorporated into the presentation.  
   They also commonly choose an insect or other invertebrate, a bird, a mammal or a fish, and possibly a wild plant to highlight.You never know what you will encounter when Jim and Carol McGraff present their Nature Discoveries program. But what you will do is enjoy one of our most popular programs ever, Have Fun and Learn!
