June 11, 2024

Ready to go on an adventure? Join the Love County Library on Fridays at 2:00 PM to go on a virtual adventure through some of our nation’s National Parks starting June 7th – 21st! These programs are for all ages. Sign up is encouraged.

Everglades National Park, June 14th: Alligators, manatees, and dolphins, oh my! Learn how the largest subtropical wilderness in the U.S. uses its varied ecosystems to provide habitat to the myriad of animals and more. Discover how mangroves, sawgrass marshes, pine flatwoods, and other ecosystems are intertwined as part of the freshwater flow from Lake Okeechobee. Join us for this jam-packed wildlife session with experts from the park!

Wilderness Inquiry developed virtual adventures to advance our mission of connecting everyone to the outdoors, regardless of age, ability, or background. Each Virtual Adventure is led by outdoor professionals and partners including biologists, historians, and rangers from the National Park Service. Explore destinations near and far, and learn about topics such as history, culture, and ecology. These virtual adventures are a great fit for armchair travelers looking to explore from home, program coordinators looking for new learning opportunities, or anyone interested in learning more about the natural world.

Love County Library is offering this program as part of a health literacy grant from the Oklahoma Department of Libraries (ODL). The program is funded in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

This program is part of the Summer Reading Program (SRP) and is supported in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Oklahoma Department of Libraries.
