Eric Young, program director for Sweetbriar Nature Center, visited kindergarten students at Harley Avenue Primary School at the end of April.  Students learned about the different types of animals that are rehabilitated at Sweetbriar and even had the opportunity to meet some in their own classroom. Mr. Young first introduced the children to two types of turtles, sharing interesting facts about the reptiles. The students were delighted as the turtles “raced” across the classroom floor. In addition, the kindergartners met a corn snake and “Henrietta” the hen.
