Friends of the Branch River Watershed would like to invite you to our next public family event to be held Sunday, March 17 @ 1 pm at the Manitowoc PublicLibrary! We will be hosting the Fox Valley Herp Club upstairs in the
Balkansky Rooms. This neat group will do a short presentation on reptiles and then the fun starts with lots of hands-on interaction with many snakes, turtles, and other reptiles big and small!! We will also have treats from Cravings in Whitelaw afterwards for your enjoyment! This is a FREE family event open to the public; donations are appreciated. We will also have information available for you to learn more about our group and getting involved and/or becoming a member of Friends of the Branch River Watershed. Check us out on Facebook if interested in
learning more about us or call Al Klingeisen or Emily Endter with questions. Thank you to Lakeshore Dental and Manitowoc Public Library for sponsoring our Spring Event!
