NATURE'S NATIVES® PRESENTATIONS
786-383-3221
JUNE 5th, 2014 Today's presentation marked the first for the Summer at Broward County's libraries. We did something new during this Parkland Library presentation of, Nature's Natives® Breathe, Eat & Photosynthesis. We listened with stethoscopes so we could hear our insides. It was a fun and educational experience as we head towards environmental literacy.
JUNE 12th, 2014 What a nice library! The Broward NW Regional Library is big and the rooms were full including ours for the performance, Nature's Natives® Water Needs, Supplies & Conservation. We started out with a bit of technical difficulty but quickly got into the rhythm of finding out why we need water, how we get water inside us, where our water supply is located and how to conserve water.
