Erie Zoo!

Our presenters read the story, “Animal Strike at the Zoo” and brought Earl the hedgehog, Gus the skunk, and Dwight the skink. The program was well attended with over 30 people of all ages present for the event. Our presenters were great! The children were very interactive asking good questions about the animals. They allowed our participants to pet the animals. Gus and Earl were the favorites for the day!
