Kids will restore habitat at zoo camps

by | Jun 4, 2009

Woodland Park Zoo still has some room in its summer day camps. Campers will take part in a habitat restoration project in Lower Woodland Park during their week-long camp.
“One Can Make a Difference: Zooper Day Camp” is for ages 4-9.

We are very excited to present a day camp theme this year that lets kids discover how they can make a difference in the world and improve their environment. Campers will not only engage in eco-friendly crafts and activities like bird watching, but they will also get hands-on with conservation and join a habitat restoration project in Lower Woodland Park. As a culminating project each week campers will plant ground cover and shrubs and help with the maintenance and protection of this high priority restoration area in our neighborhood.

Wildlife Conservation: Zoo University is for ages 10-14.

This day camp for older kids connects campers with at-home conservation actions, field-based research experience, and conservation leadership skills to help them make a difference in the environment. Campers will take hikes, do nature journaling, explore with GPS and radio tracking devices, learn site mapping, and take on a leadership role in the habitat restoration project with Zooper campers in Lower Woodland Park.

More information and registration is available online.
