It's a Zoo Out There
Your children already act like wild animals. Why not put their feral nature to good use at the weeklong Junior Zoo Keeper Day Camp, where 9 to 12-year-old kids get to experience New Mexico’s native wildlife and plants up close and personal. From 9am to noon on Monday, July 15 through Friday, July 19, real zookeepers give kids hands-on lessons about the biology and care of animals at Wildlife West Nature Park. Snacks and drink are provided. Each five-day camp session costs $30 for Edgewood and Santa Fe County residents and $70 for everyone else. (Joshua Lee)
