Did you know that many of the characters from the popular Pokemon games were inspired by real animals? During this unique program, learn about the real defense strategies animals use to protect themselves, find shelter and find food. There will be five animal ambassadors present that have “characters” in the Pokemon games/shows. We will discuss natural history, stories, diets, habitats, conservation and more. The first events will be on Tuesday, June 20, at 10:30 a.m. at the Carbondale Branch Library, and 1:30 p.m. at the Glenwood Springs Branch Library. On Wednesday, June 21, the Silt Branch Library will host at 10:30 a.m., and the New Castle Branch Library will host at 1:30 p.m. Finally on Thursday, June 22, the event will begin at 10:30 a.m. at the Rifle Branch Library, and 1:30 p.m. at the Parachute Branch Library. All are free and open to the public. Visit http://www.gcpld.org for more information.
