Are your children bugging you……
to do something fun this summer?

The following books feature creatures that were spotted recently at South Fork Nature Center. The proof is in the pictures as we proudly display images captured on site by a Leslie Goff, a frequent South Fork Nature Center visitor. What better way to combat the “summer slide” than to read about local creatures and then set out to explore their habitat at the South Fork Nature Center? We’ve chosen some books from the NSTA’s Outstanding Science Trade Books for Student K-12:2014 list.
