(DOTHAN--) Friday, June 20, Landmark Park will present the annual “Animal Adventures,” special one-hour educational programs providing unique opportunities to learn about our natural world. Children ages 5 and older are encouraged to come with their youth groups and families to see the wonder of native and exotic animals.
Programs begin at 10 a.m. in the Interpretive Center at Landmark Park. A noon program may be added if the morning session fills. Admission is free with paid admission to the park ($4 for adults, $3 for children 3-12, free for members and children 2 and under). Reservations are required, plus a 50 percent deposit for groups of 15 or more.
The next program, “Alabama Birds,” will take place on June 20. Terry Morse of Big Bend Wildlife Sanctuary in Enterprise will bring birds native to this region, including owls and other raptors. These beautiful birds are non-releasable rehabilitated birds that have been given a new purpose in life as education birds. Their feeding, hunting and nesting habits will be discussed, as well as what you should do if you find orphaned or injured wildlife.
Landmark Park, home of the Alabama Agricultural Museum, is a 135-acre historical and natural science park located on U.S. Highway 431 North in Dothan, Ala. For more information and to register for a program, contact the park at 334-794-3452.
