“Great Blue Heron: Majestic Bird of the Watershed,” a program for school age children, is scheduled for Monday, July 25 from 11 a.m. to noon at the Acworth Library, 4569 Dallas Street. The event of fun activities and stories about the large bird will be led by an award-winning environmental educator of the Cobb County Water System’s Watershed Stewardship Program.
Sonya Wood Mahler and Perdido, her life-size Great Blue Heron puppet, will share how the bird is adapted to its environment and why protecting watersheds is important. Mahler has devoted over 35 years to outdoors work – on land and sea – as an environmental educator with stints in Florida, Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky, and journeys in the United States and Mexico on educational and humanitarian missions.
