The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife is thrilled to announce a five-week story and snack time event that promises to educate and engage children about native wildlife in Southwest Florida. CROW Story Time aims to foster a love for literature and animals while also sharing CROW’s mission of saving wildlife.

This interactive event is hosted at CROW’s Visitor and Education Center every Tuesday at 2pm. A CROW staff member narrates a conservation story to educate and entertain guests on a variety of topics. Each week features a different story showcasing local authors. The special summer five-week event spans every Tuesday until August 8. Visit for a full list of events.

In addition to captivating storytelling sessions, special animal ambassador guests will be in attendance for the kids and adults to meet. These animal ambassadors aid in engaging and teaching all audience members about the topics highlighted in the featured stories.

“Children are the future caregivers of our wildlife so it’s important to foster their love of animals and learning at an early age,” said Alison Charney Hussey, CROW’s Executive Director. “We are happy to have them back at CROW. Their happy faces and interesting questions lift our hearts and love of learning as well.”

CROW Story Time is a free program focusing on conservation education and community engagement. This program is designed for children and accompanying adults. Adults are asked to enjoy story time with their child for a fun and interactive experience.
