SPIDERS, and SEWERS, and SONGBIRDS -- oh my!

Lansdowne EAC NEWS (1)

Participants in the Lansdowne Public Library’s Steps into Nature programs learned about all nature bugs, trees, mammals and birds!

Did you know that 

—a harmless spider was first discovered in Lansdowne?  In all the world it exists only in our region.

—trees don’t just drop their leaves in fall?  With special “scissor cells,” they actually cut their own leaves off!

—Lansdowne’s foxes help keep our houses from being overrun with mice?

—dozens of colorful bird species, each with its own special lifestyle, live in Lansdowne?

Participants in the Lansdowne Public Library’s Steps into Nature programs learned about all these things!  Last fall the library held four hands-on outdoor programs, with info interesting to all ages, on the topics of bugs, trees, mammals, and birds.  

Programs in months to come will focus on topics such as

—how a sewer system works and why you should never let grease from your dishes go down the drain (together participants will build a mock sewer system out of cardboard to visualize how a system works)

—what pollinators are and why human beings can’t survive without them

—in Nature, what’s an alien invasion, and why we should care?

—when is using plastic good and when is it terrible?  What we can do about plastics hurting Nature and people?

—how animals in Lansdowne raise their babies in spring

—why clean air matters for trees, animals, and humans 

Check  lansdownelibrary.org in the weeks to come to see what dates are chosen for the programs. Also, did you know that Lansdowne's Environmental Advisory Council is developing several environmental initiatives?  For more information, email us at eaclansdowne@gmail.com
