Read to Luke today at the Hingham Library at 10:30 a.m. today. Reading to trained therapy dogs helps develop literacy skills and builds confidence as well as self-esteem.

You can hold and take a photo with a live alligator or boa constrictor while learning fun animal facts. 

It’s time for South Shore Explorations: Dubury’s Hidden Gems, with the North River Wildlife Sanctuary in Marshfield with a series of exploratory trips to some of the South Shore’s most compelling but, lesser known natural history hot spots. Hidden pockets of striking beauty are often the reward for curiousity and investigating what’s around the next bend. Each session will be appropriate for all ages and focus on a variety of habitats and ecosystems. Plan on a couple of short walks for each session. We will meet at the North River office, jump in the van and head out with the spirit of adventure and mystery as we commit to rounding the next bend. Bring a picnic! Duxbury has a long tradition of acquiring vital conservation properties. You will visit a number of both new and old acquisitions that highlight diverse ecosystems – celebrating winter’s offerings from forest, field, marsh, bay, and thicket. This program is suitable for kids of all ages and you must pre-register by calling 781.837.9400 or online HERE.
