Back by popular demand, wildlife educators from The Wildlife Center of Virginia return to Central Rappahannock Regional Library July 18 – 21 with critters in tow for Journey Along the River.

One of the defining features of the Fredericksburg area is the Rappahannock River. In this special class, you will meet some of the wild animals that depend on the river for survival, and find out how your actions affect the river, the surrounding environment, and ultimately the animals themselves.

Children in grades K-6 and their caregivers are invited to attend. Please call your branch to sign up.
