THE ZOO COMES TO YOU!
UPCOMING OUTREACH TOURS
Spring 2019: Inside Out – What shapes our body? Why do some animals have endoskeletons while others have exoskeletons? These questions and more will be answered while the instructor also educates learners on the importance of snakes, tarantulas, and other misunderstood animals.
Fall 2019: WILD at Home – What makes Mississippi WILD? Our state is home to many unique wild animals! Barred Owls, commonly referred to as “Hoot” or “Swamp” Owls are an example of our fair feathered Mississippians. You may be surprised to learn that some snakes have a “super power,” and Gopher Tortoises are a “keystone species” in our ecosystem. Join us as we explore the fascinating wildlife in our very own backyards.
