What could a little bunny know about our world? In the case of Swamper the swamp rabbit...a whole lot! Swamper shares his wisdom in a series of “found” letters compiled in a book. Your child can get a rabbit’s-eye view of wetland food chains, life cycles, birds, habitats, and more. Each class will include story time, a nature walk, and hands-on activities. Swamper
