Nature Detective Workshops
Saturday, July 19
@ 1:00pm & 2:30 pm (repeat workshop)

Children ages 6 - 12 are invited to become Nature Detectives and learn all about bats and how these pollinators relate to gardening at these hands-on workshops. Every child will receive free gardening goodies, including Nature Detective notebooks, and enjoy learning all about our wonderful Florida bats and why they are so valuable, not scary!

These workshops are designed by the Sisterhood of the Traveling Plants, sponsored by the Garden Club of St. Augustine and the Friends of the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library, with special partners from Bird Island Park providing activities with a special bat craft afterwards. Space is limited, so sign up for the 1:00 or 2:30 workshop by stopping by the Reference Desk or calling the Library at 827-6950!

St. Johns County Public Library

St Johns County Public Library/Ponte Vedra Beach Branch
Our mission is to make the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch of the St. Johns County Public Library System an outstanding educational, cultural, civic and recreational center for the community. This will be achieved by providing supplemental books, materials, volunteers and programs; fundraising and advocating on behalf of the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library.  By enlisting the support of all those dedicated to disseminating knowledge, we believe the community will be enhanced and enriched.

It is a separate and distinct community-based group that works with the St. Johns County Public Library System administration to enhance and enrich library and information services for the people of Ponte Vedra Beach.
