Fires, Karin DIVERSITY of LIFE Nature- Animals,
Nature- Other
Wildlife Educators Coalition (WEC) brings a variety of live, exotic animals to your location and demonstrates some of the amazing variety of life found on this planet. We start with a general monologue about diversity and some surprising facts about life forms. We then go to the live animals, beginning with insects to lizards to snakes to tortoises & turtles. In this part, WEC volunteers carry different types of each species around the room so people can get up close and ask questions. Some of the animals can be touched. Volunteers with hand sanitizer follow. From there we go to our higher level animals--a cockatoo and a variety of mammals, culminating with a fun and educational visit from Maggie, our black-handed spider monkey.

Edgecomb, Diane Insect Comedy Nature- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Science
Insect Comedy takes a delightful look at our Six-legged friends. In Princess Firefly entertaining facts are served up along with plenty of silliness as the Princess ponders, “Who will be the bug I will love?” Kate's Acorn, one of Diane's original stories, teaches about the importance of soil creatures in the life cycle of plants. And in another backyard tale we learn about when to keep or let insects go. Diane's hilarious interpretations of Mr. Mosquito, Mr. Gnat, Old King Lampyradie Beetle keep us laughing as we take a closer look at the world of insects. "From the Academy's point of view, the storytelling could not have worked better as a public program. The stories you told, captivated and fascinated our audience. I was impressed that they would not let you leave the stage without an encore performance. Diane your storytelling is fantastic!" Linda Wolf, Public Programs Coordinator, The Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia, PA
