Wild Things will feature the Animals of North America
On Saturday, March 29, the Camino Science and Natural Resources Charter School is hosting a Science Day “Wild Things.” This event will feature the “Animals of North America” show, presented by WildThingsInc, a wildlife rehabilitation and rescue nonprofit organization. Participants will be enthralled by the live bald eagle, alligator and raccoon.
The open house and hands-on science experiments start at 9 a.m., and activities continue on campus until 1 p.m. All El Dorado County children and families are invited. With prior registration, a complimentary lunch will be served. Come learn about the wildlife we share with our planet.
Camino Charter and Natural Resources Charter School provides an academically rigorous standards-based curriculum using natural resource-based education as an integrating context for learning across the curriculum. Our school provides hands-on learning, a focus on math and science, student chosen elective classes, educational field trips, small class sizes, cooperative learning, independent action projects and required parent involvement to meet the needs of our 21st century learners.
Wildlife Conservation & Education
Wild Things Inc. is a 501-c3 non-profit organization incorporated in 1987 to serve two valuable purposes:
- Provide homes for displaced wildlife.
- Share these animals as wildlife ambassadors in a public education forum.
The wild creatures housed at our organization are all animals that need help. They are animals that either have injuries that keep them from surviving in the wild or animals that individuals have tried to keep as illegal pets. Most of the animals housed at Wild Things Inc. come to us through the California Department of Fish and Game or the United States Fish and Wildlife Service.
Wild Things, Inc. visits tens of thousands of school children every year with a message of conservation and appreciation for the earth's natural wonders.
