If you've ever wanted to go behind the scenes and help at a nature center, and you’re in grade 6 or 7, The Connecticut Audubon Society offers an after-school Junior Animal Care program that may be just right for you!
This weekly class is an opportunity to join naturalist staff in caring for, and studying, the resident non-releasable animals who call the Center at Fairfield their home. The program provides an overview of our live animal collection including reptiles, amphibians, birds and invertebrates. From glamorous to gross, you’ll participate in animal husbandry care, prepare and offer food, and ensure the animals have a healthy living environment. At the end of the course each participant will receive a certificate of completion.
Space is limited and advance registration is required. The seven-week class fee is $72 for CAS members, and $96 for nonmembers. All proceeds support The Connecticut Audubon Society’s conservation and environmental education programs. Register in advance by calling 203-259-6305 ext. 109 or sign up online atwww.ctaudubon.org/center-at-fairfield.
