For ages 8-12. Students will get an opportunity to go behind the scenes and see what is involved in our animal care. Working alongside our entomology and education staff, students will assist with general care of our animals. This includes feeding insects, releasing butterflies, preparing fruit trays, and more. Students also participate in animal handling and demonstrations for the public. This program will give students an understanding of the challenges and skills necessary for taking care of live arthropods. Each participant will receive a name badge, t-shirt, and mounted butterfly to take home. To schedule a date, please call (314)577-0888, extension 2.
