Family evenings end with a quack

-A A +A

Talk: Sallye Sibbitt will visit PEEC

Pajarito Environmental Education Center will offer its final Summer Family Evenings program for 2012 at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.  
Sallye Sibbitt  of the Duck Buddies, will visit with information about ducks, duck crafts and giveaways and live ducks.
Duck Buddies is a volunteer group formed to help the ducks at Ashley Pond.
They have cared for the ducks for many years and most recently, assisted with the design for the Ashley Pond renovations that were recently approved by the County Council.
Sibbitt will begin the evening with talk about ducks in general — for example, the difference between wild and domestic ducks, and how waterfowl are different than other birds. She will also talk about what ducks eat and how their anatomy helps them swim.  
Next, she will discuss the ducks at Ashley Pond, including how they got there, their history and how to interact with them kindly and humanely.
She’ll have crafts and hands-on activities for kids to do and will bring her pet ducks.  These ducks were injured and could no longer live in the pond, so now they live at Sibbit’s house.  
This program is open to the public and is free for PEEC members and a $5 donation to Duck Buddies for non-members.
