10:30 - 11:30 am. For Ages 5-12. Be amazed by the talents of a diverse group of Animal Ambassadors that build complicated structures. We'll study the architectural feats of nest building, burrow making and web spinning as well as how structures created by some animals help others to survive. In nature, many creatures contribute to the success of others by building homes and creating places to rear their young. We'll explore how we too can help our wild neighbors by building bird boxes and frog ponds. We will meet live Animal Ambassadors such as a Monk Parakeet, a Red Foot Tortoise, a Mandarin Duck, a Chilean Rose-Haired Tarantula, a Ferret, an Argentinian Horned Frog, an African Hedgehog or African Porcupine, and a Flower Mantis.
