The jaguar roars; the owl hoots, the boa constrictor slithers through the trees in search or prey, the tarantula strengthens its web to ensnare many of the insects of the night, the tortoise burrows underground to escape the prowling jaguar, the sugar glider hunts for flies and other small creatures, the walking stick cleverly mimics the branch or plant it sits upon to avoid detection. Animal Embassy will bring the night-time story of the rainforest to life with living examples of its many jungle characters! Meet a Red-foot tortoise, a Pink-toed tarantula, a Boa constrictor, a Sugar glider, and more!

Gray, Daniel UFOs and unknown flying objects: an assessment of the unknown History,
Media- Other,
Science
Did you ever see a UFO? Did the United States Government ever investigate the “flying saucer” phenomenon? What about the rumors about Roswell, or a recovered UFO and alien bodies in 1947? What are the general types of UFOs? Are they all discs? Are there aliens? What do they look like? Can life exist on other planets? This presentation is an attempt to answer some of these questions and perhaps to inform young adults about this popular culture subject. Originally created as part of the Summer Reading Program in 2015, or “Spark and Reaction” at Capital Region libraries, this presentation is intended to inform and entertain teenagers ages 13-18. Teachers or librarians can encourage further critical thinking on the subject and direct young adults to research this highly controversial subject. This presentation can be offered during Halloween, or “scary” Halloween parties or fun activities.

A Celebration of Nature and all the simple things we can do to help. Tales for the Earth is a beloved performance that is both educational and entertaining. It explores topics such as Water Conservation, Recycling and Wildlife Protection. Like all of Diane's programs, the performance is tailored to suit each specific audience. Depending on the age range stories may include: What Now, Cloacina?, Diane's hilarious water conservation story about a water sprite who travels through the sewage system in search of her pond or Boy Who Loved the Swamp, based on the true story of a 5th Grade student who saves his favorite nature spot from development. In addition contemporary tales explore ways to foster a whole Earth ethic. What shines through the entire presentation is a love and respect for our place in nature; with many ideas communicated about how we can create a difference. "Diane- Thank you for adding your magic to our Earth Day celebration this past weekend. We had over 1100 happy visitors that day, which is wonderful. You were so amazing with your messages and your dramatic "art." Thank you for coming!"Bonnie Drexler, New England Wildflower Society
