GRAND HAVEN/SPRING LAKE, Mich. -- Outdoor Discovery Center naturalist Jamie Krupka will bring a hands-on program to the Spring Lake and Grand Haven area for two library performances on Tuesday, July 22 as part of its summer reading club.

The Outdoor Discovery Center’s program focuses on introducing children to Michigan wildlife. Live animals including reptiles, amphibians and birds will be used during the presentation. Kids will learn unique characteristics of animals and how they fit into our diverse ecosystems. Hands-on artifacts include skins, skulls, wings, feathers and talons of several species native to Michigan.

Krupka will present at the Spring Lake District Library, 123 E. Exchange Street,  from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. The program will be repeated at the Loutit District Library, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
