August 20, 2018

Etna is hosting two educational programs for young children, in conjunction with Allegheny County Park Rangers, at Clarence Fugh Memorial Park.

Etna officials are joining with Allegheny County Park Rangers to offer two animal-themed educational programs for children.

“Skins and Skulls” will be at 2:30 p.m. Aug. 15 at the Clarence Fugh Memorial Park, 2 Pine Street.

Aimed at children in grades one to five, the special event will see rangers and students exploring animals native to the county.

Participants will have a hands-on demonstration with an extensive collection of animal skins and skulls, and will have a chance to discover animal traits through a question-and-answer session.

A second program, “Tracks and Scat,” follows at 2:30 p .m. Aug. 29. It is also at the park.

For students in kindergarten through fifth grade, the program will teach students which tracks and scat belong to different species.
