The Environmental Resource Center’s 5th annual Spring Science Series offers exciting and interactive presentations on scientific topics ranging from plant and animal adaptations and life histories, to unique conservation strategies.
This week staff from Zoo Idaho will present on native animals with some of their live residents. Past animal visitors have included a tortoise, skunk, black-footed ferret, gopher snake, boreal chorus frog and more!
Zoo Idaho, located in Pocatello, is situated on 25 acres and is home to nearly 150 animals. The Zoo, founded in 1932, is home to many animals of the intermountain west who were orphaned or injured and would have died in the wild.
Rachel Shearouse, Zoo Idaho’s Curator of Education, has a background in environmental education and has been presenting at the Spring Science Series for the past three years.
This program is offered in conjunction with the ERC’s Spring Exploration Series which brings presenters from across the Northwest to all 2nd and 3rd grade classrooms in Blaine County during the school day. This program is FREE, family-friendly and open to the public! Don’t miss your opportunity to learn about the natural world from visiting experts!
