Science Through Nature Exploration for Grades K-1
Kelly Martin, President of the New York Council of Wildlife Rehabilitators gives students a close-up look at New York's native species. Students will have the opportunity to learn to identify some of New York's common and rare wildlife, ask questions about their lives in the wild, and learn about animal rehabilitation. Kelly's animals are non-releasable education animals which provide a unique opportunity to see wildlife up close.
Cost: $150 flat fee for a 1-2 hour program. Schools visiting on multiple days may be eligible for a discounted animal program cost. Please inquire.
If done in conjunction with another Huyck Preserve lesson, this wildlife lesson fee is in addition to the $5 per student field trip fee.
