Nature series returns to Shaler North Hills Library with ‘Furs and Pelts’

Friday, September 6, 2019 | 6:19 PM

Shaler North Hill’s Library’s exciting series of nature-related workshops returns. Our Master Naturalists in Training will present interactive workshops on a variety of nature-related subjects. Pat Milliken and Gil Pielin are retired high school teachers, currently working on their certification as Master Naturalists.

Join us on Tuesday, September 10 from 1:30-3:30 p.m.  for “Furs and Pelts.” In this interactive workshop we will have hands-on activities discovering pelts and furs of native animals from our region. Why is their fur the way it is? Is it waterproof? What benefits does it provide the animal? How does it work with their body and their environment? Bring your curiosity and join in the fun as we learn about the world all around us.

This program is designed for adults. Participants must be at least 14 years of age. Registration is required at 412-486-0211 or online at

Mark your calendars for the other programs in this series, on Tuesdays at 1:30 p.m.:

  • October 8:       Animals, from Cockroach to Chinchilla
  • November 12: Mammals and Skulls

You may attend one, two or all programs in this series. Please register for each program that you plan to attend.
