Clad Your Kid in Khaki
What kid didn't set up their stuffed animals and pretend they were at a zoo? Luckily for those kids, Wildlife West Nature Park is offering Junior Zookeeper Day Camp. From 9am to noon on Monday, June 11 through Friday, June 15 kids ages 8 to 12 learn zookeeping techniques, animal enrichment, and the biology of native plants and wildlife. This week-long camp allows children to be close to wildlife in a safe environment, namely Bob the bobcat and four gray foxes. This engaging event is $30 for families living in Santa Fe County and $70 for families outside of Santa Fe County. Cultivate your kid's love of animals and sign them up soon because space is limited and registration is required! (Valerie Serna)
