Dr. Drew and His Animals Too! at New Gloucester Public Library

July 30 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Free

Drew has been interested in animals from a very young age. As a boy, he spent much of his free time in the local woods or by the waters edge. Over 40 years ago, he started keeping aquarium fish, this opened a new world for him …SCIENCE! From that first aquarium, he learned and studied; geology, geography, biology, botany, chemistry, entomology, ichthyology and the list goes on. He is involved with the Boy Scouts of America, earning his Eagle Scout at the age of 16. Drew has worked in the pet industry for over 30 years. During that time, he owned and operated a pet store and an aquarium maintenance service.

Drew is also a rehabilitator and outreach program for injured, neglected and unwanted exotic animals to either find them good homes or use them in his shows for educational purposes. He has written informational articles for magazines and has had a small segment on CNN on “Keeping reptiles healthy and warm in the winter”. Drew has remained in the educational circuit as an Educational Technician, merit badge counselor and a guide for Thorncrag Bird Sanctuary and Mt. Apatite Geological Park. Drew delights all ages with his unique style, energy, knowledge and love for learning.
