Visitors to Fauquier County libraries will have a chance to interact with animals on Saturday, June 29.
Fauquier County Public Library presents Wildlife Ambassadors, as part of the 2019 summer reading program.
“This family-friendly event will provide an up close and personal interaction with amazing animals found right in our own backyards,” according to a library news release.
Based in western Loudoun County, Wildlife Ambassadors is an environmental educational organization that teaches respect for wildlife and the environment.
