A special two-part outdoor program will be held at the Troy Community Park on W. Myrtle St. on Tuesday, June 21 from 10:30 a.m. to about 12:30 p.m. Doniphan County Library District #1 and the Troy Community Park Committee are collaborating to host this event. Both parts of the program are free and open to the public.
The first part of the program, called Fox Trot Story Time, will involve children visiting the six wildlife signs at the park and listening to stories about the animals featured at each sign. Participants should come to the shelter house at 10:30 a.m. to obtain a map showing the locations of the signs.
The second part of the June 21 program, called Wings and Feet, will be held in the shelter house at the Troy Community Park, beginning at 11:30 a.m. It will include a presentation about wildlife by volunteers with Operation Wildlife, a wildlife rehabilitation facility in Linwood, Kansas, and will feature a live owl, hawk, and snake as well as preserved specimens of wings and talons of hawks and owls.
Library District #1 plans to provide a free hot dog lunch for the participants. In case of rain, both parts of the program will be held at the Main Library in Troy.
