Join the celebration of wildlife in New Mexico. Wildlife West Nature Park is one of the few places where people can be close to and observe Mexican Wolves in their natural habitat and get behind the scenes tours of Koshari, a 500 pound black bear, and learn about 24 other species of wildlife that are native to New Mexico. Tours start each hour during the day.
Sign up now for a week-long Junior Zookeeper Day Camp at Wildlife West Nature Park in Edgewood. Children between the ages 8 to 12 years will have a rare opportunity to experience up close and learn about New Mexico’s native wildlife and plants, and observe what animal keepers do on a day to day basis. Children will interact with animals in a safe environment, make toys for the wildlife, observe their behavior, and get behind the scenes tours led by zookeepers. This five-day camp program runs for four weeks from 9 a.m. to noon, June 2-6th, June 9-13th, June 16-20th and June 23-27th.
The camps are taught by two certified teachers who will cover everything from zoo-keeping and bird-watching techniques, to animal enrichment projects. Children will learn about the care and basic biology of native wildlife and plants. This outdoor educational program will help children develop life-long values about wildlife and the environment.
Thanks to funding support from Santa Fe County and the Town of Edgewood, this five-day camp is $25/child for families who live in Edgewood or Santa Fe county, or $60/child for families outside this area.
Daily snacks and drinks will be provided. Space is limited, so register now online at www.wildlifewest.org or call Wildlife West at 505-2817655.
