Nature Matters Inc. will deliver a live animal presentation at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 24, at the Richmond Free Public Library, 2821 State Road.

Founded by Jen Leahey of Leahey Farm in Lee, Nature Matters is home to a diverse collection of animals who were unable to survive in the wild due to an injury, or they were born in captivity and have never learned how to fend for themselves. 

Reservations are required by calling the library at 413-553-7795.
