Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The children of Saugus and their parents got two chances for close encounters with wildlife at the Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site. On Monday (Aug. 28), they got to meet and hold some interesting snakes in a program called “Snakes of New England and the World,” which was presented by Director Rick Roth of the Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team.

Earlier in the month (Aug. 17), the kids enjoyed a visit from Wildlife Encounters Ecology & Wellness Center of Barrington, N.H. Bungee, a baby Wallaby, was a big hit. They also got to pet a Flemish giant rabbit.

“Kids in Saugus love animals,” said Amy Melton, Head of Children’s Services at the Saugus Public Library. “It’s true! They love opportunities to learn about them and meet them in person!”

The Saugus Public Library and the Iron Works teamed up to bring both events to Saugus, treating kids to a late summer fun learning experience.
