Goliad State Park Ranger Rex Niemeyer informs Runge Library participants all about nature and animal tracking at their latest summer program.
Children and adults look for signs of wildlife at the Runge City Park as part of the Runge Public Library’s “Dig In To Nature” summer program held recently.
Wednesday, July 10, the Runge Public Library welcomed Park Ranger Rex Niemeyer from the Goliad State Park and Historic Site to “Dig In To Nature”. We got to talk about how to recognize and read animal tracks as well as other signs you might find on an animal trail. We looked at pictures and tried to match the sign to the animal, then headed outside to see what signs we could find in Runge City Park. You'd be surprised.
Friday, July 12, we said goodbye to our Dig In To Reading programs with an awards ceremony for those who earned their certificates and prizes. Monica Alvear joined us to do face painting for anyone who wanted it.
Monday, July 15, Throwdown 2: the Librarian Strikes Back!, officially opened. Anyone with a Runge Library Card and an account in good standing can participate as Runge tries to out read me a second time. I never got my Shrieking Flying Monkey last year, so this year I am taking no prisoners. If you think you and your friends have got what it takes to beat me, come on down and sign on the dotted line.
