Session 1: 9-10am
Grades K-2

Day 1: Meet your wild neighbors
As part of a diverse community of plants and animals particular to where we live, each species has a unique role in their community. Meet some amazing rescued animal ambassadors, as we discover some of their local counterparts, and explore the vital contributions each would make to the environment had they been born free.

Day 2: Backyard Naturalist
From the worms, insects and other animals that till the soil; to squirrels, chipmunks and others that sow the seeds; to the butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds who pollinate the plants, learn how animals support plant life and how plant life supports them.

Day 3: Wild America
From polar bears, to jaguars, to alligators…our 50 states include habitats and animals that cover the extremes. Discover the animals and stories of the Florida Everglades, coast of Maine, rain forests of Alaska and Mountains of California as we journey through Wild America.

Session 2: 10:30 to 11:30am
Grades 3-6

Day 1: Creature Kindness
Often the very things that make us unique in this world are the ones others find weird or strange. Explore what makes each animal stand out and how these characteristics/adaptations help them survive and thrive.

Day 2: Animal Kingdom Heroes
In the wild, there are certain animals that do the “heavy lifting” for their animal counterparts in their community. Explore how some creatures are essential for the health and safety of other animals.

Day 3: Architects of Nature
To build something better, we need to understand how it is put together. Meet the animal ambassadors that help us inspire children and adults to “build a better world” together.
