WILD NEIGHBORS - live animal program

In this program, we explore the world of wildlife with a special focus on what people can do to help wild animals. In this fun, engaging experience, students will meet some of our live animal ambassadors including native North Carolina reptiles and mammals. All of our ambassadors have a story to tell and a lesson to teach us all about how we can help the wildlife in our own backyards. Our special focus will be on the needs of the native animals of the Piedmont in North Carolina.
