I have had several people ask me for the results I got back from my Animal
Presenters request so I am sharing it below:)

*Here are the terrific ideas I got:*

🐛Wildlife Encounters based out of Rochester, NH. Derek and his team are
great! We have loved having him off and on here at my school for over 10

Have fun!

🐛Hi Mary - I had the York Center For Wildlife for a program this summer
that was wonderful.  I had over ninety kids and adult attend! They were
really great to work with too. You may want to check them out:
Good luck with your program!

🐛This may not be what you're looking for, but we had them visit this
summer and they were great-- they talked about how to stay safe when
hiking, how the dogs work and did a demonstration with the dogs, finding
kids who were hiding.

🐛We have had Mr. Drew and His Animals Too. He did a great job and folks
loved the presentation!

🐛I've heard very good things about the Honey Exchange out of Portland.
They do beekeeping demos and bring live bees. I believe SoPo PL has had it
in the past and it's been very popular.


🐛We have had Chewonki and Sparks Ark.  Families seem to prefer Sparks
Ark.  His prices are right, and he is really good with the kids.
