‘Creepy Critters’ today at libraries


— Animal Tales from Kentucky will return to Oklahoma today to present “Creepy Critters.” Animal Tales was founded by education naturalist, Jared Baker in 2009.

“Creepy Critters” is a seasonal program that focuses on those less cuddly and icky creatures whose importance is often taken for granted, according to a media release. This program features arachnids, insects and snakes to illustrate that such undesirable critters serve an extremely important purpose to the environment. Participants will be allowed to get “hands-on” with several animals and all should walk away with a different view of these creepy critters.

All programs are open to the public at no charge.

Animal Tales will present programs at two area libraries today:

• 10 a.m., Q.B. Boydstun Library, Fort Gibson.

• 2 p.m., Muskogee Public Library.
