We’re celebrating the amazing longleaf pine habitat this spring! Join us for a special program with author and illustrator Anne Marshall Runyon. Anne will read excerpts from her wonderful picture book, Longneedle, about the 300-year life of a single longleaf pine tree in the North Carolina Coastal Plain – how it survived fire and hurricanes and its connections with other plants and animals. See original illustrations and learn about the inspiration behind the book, too. Following the reading, families will have the unique opportunity to craft paper sculptures of the two charming squirrels featured in Longneedle – the fox squirrel and the southern flying squirrel.
