Join Zoo educators for a fun forest themed member morning. We meet some animals that call the forest home and learn how invasive species are changing our forest ecosystem. After the class we will be pulling on our gloves to remove some invasive plants.
In 2018, the International Day of Forests (IDF) will address the theme, ‘Forests for sustainable cities,’ and will focus on how forests and trees in urban areas regulate temperature and water flows, provide nutritious foods and shelter, cleanse the air and foster community cohesion and individual well-being, among other benefits.
