Help us celebrate our desert tortoise before winter approaches and he heads into his burrow for a long nap. We’ll start outdoors with a feeding and a meet ‘n’ greet with our park tortoise, “Al.”  We’ll then head inside for a special time with local author, Carol Hageman, as she reads “Bubby’s Puddle Pond,” her charming “Tortuga Tale” that teaches kids and adults about the life of an adopted desert tortoise. Carol’s book will be available for purchase and Carol will be on hand to sign your copy.  We’ll wrap up the program with coloring and worksheet activities for the kids.  Meet at the Nature Center.
