HARVARD -- Want to be with a fisher up close and personal?

Come to the Harvard Public Library to meet some real native animals and learn more about the animals that live in your backyard.

Rick from "Creature Teachers" will bring several animals to the library, including a gray fox, flying squirrel, woodchuck, milksnake, porcupine, fisher, snapping turtle and painted turtle.

As you meet the animals, Rick will tell us more about the lives of some of the common animals that we encounter every day. The event is for all ages on Thursday, July 18, at 3 p.m.

Please register by calling the Children's room at 978-456-2381. This event is co-sponsored by the Harvard Conservation Trust.
