Evanston event to put amphibians and reptiles center stage

May 10, 2018 by  

Young Evanston “herpophiles” who would like to learn more about amphibians and reptiles through hands-on experience will soon have an opportunity to get up close and personal with some of these scaly creatures.

The Winnetka Community House will be hosting a morning session with The Traveling World of Reptiles, which is an interactive event that combines learning with humor. It will be led by a facilitator who will make it both entertaining and educational, and parents are invited to come along with their children to enjoy the occasion.

The creatures that will be a part of the experience come from all over the world, and the audience will be invited to both see and touch them. As they do, they will learn more about the animals, where they live, their role in the ecosystem they inhabit, and also whether or not they are endangered. The ticket price is $5 each, and each child must be accompanied by an adult who will be admitted free of charge.

The organizer of the show noted that the goal of the event is to build a respect for reptiles and amphibians by teaching the public that they don’t have to be feared and they play an important role in the natural world. Poster printing can be used to create an assortment of marketing items for this type of occasion.

This opportunity for Evanston kids to make some new friends of the scaly variety will take place on June 6. Anyone who would like to learn more about the show and its mission can do so on its website.
