Creature Teachers Animal Show
July 31, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Creatures up close and personal
Creature Teachers was incorporated by Shanti Kriens and Amanda LeBlanc in March 2016. Since then, the dynamic duo has conducted numerous classroom programs, birthday parties, public showcases, and corporate events in Oregon and Washington, with audiences ranging in size from 7 to nearly 900 curious minds. Creature Teachers aims to foster an appreciation for all wildlife, including the under-loved and misunderstood creatures such as snakes and spiders, who play vital roles in their ecosystems. These events allow kids and adults alike to not only hear the facts, but to also experience the animals directly, to touch them, to come to know them as individuals, and to confront their own fears. Hopefully, through knowledge and passion, those who attend will look at their world with a renewed sense of caring and stewardship. After all, as Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter said, “If people love something, they want to save it.” This event is part of Summer Reading, a Timberland Regional Library districtwide program.
