After School Program

Zany Zoology every Thursday starting April 14th to June 9th

Why can’t I see owls in the tree? How many babies can a garter snake have? How do rough-skinned newts protect their eggs? Why can mammals walk in the snow and still keep warm? We will find the answer to these and many other questions as we learn how zoology helps us to better understand how animals survive.
