Environmental Week in Strathmere
The Environmental Week
The Rita Schiavo Memorial Library and The Strathmere Fishing & Environmental Club have joined to sponsor a series of lectures on some of the marvelous creatures that share our barrier island.
On Tuesday, July 10th at 7:00 PM, at the Schiavo Library
The Wetland’s Institute will tell you all you need to know about the Diamond Back Terrapin, their habits and habitat. Find out why they insist on crossing our busy highways. As part of the presentation youngsters will release incubated terrapins into the Strathmere Bay
On Thursday, July 12th, 7:00 PM at the Schiavo Library
The Marine Mammal Stranding Center will give a presentation on their activities, how they go about rescuing sick and injured marine life. Learn how you can help the Stranding Center in their work protecting animals
On Saturday, July 14th, 7:00PM at the Firehouse
The Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ will educate us about the “fish eagle”, better known as the osprey. Why are there so many, what do they eat, where do they go in the winter. These questions and much more will be answered at this session.
We promise that each of the lectures will be educational and entertaining for both young and old. Everyone is invited, and while there is no charge for attending a generous donation will be greatly appreciated. We ask that children be accompanied with a responsible adult.
Donations will help both organizations to continue their contributions to our Village and the environment. Both the Strathmere Fishing & Environmental Club and the Rita Schiavo Memorial Library are fully tax deductible.
