Horizons 2011 (ages 9-14): Junior Zookeeper
Instructor: Vicki Lantz, Zoo Director, Lazy L Safari Park
Lions, and Tigers, and Bears, oh my! Take a Walk on the Wild Side and explore a career as a zookeeper in this hands-on class! Our Junior Zookeeper Program is designed to introduce you to basic zookeeping including how to feed, clean, and care for animals. You will also learn about animal behavior, habitats, veterinary care, conservation and more - everything you need to know to become an amazing zookeeper. On the last day of class, parents and families are invited to attend the Junior Zookeeper Certification ceremony for the new Junior Zookeepers.
*Parents should arrange for students to be dropped off and picked up at Lazy L Safari Park each day.
For students with allergies, please note that students will interact with animals throughout the week.
