Spring is just around the corner and that means a whole bunch of different things here at IEAS. One of our favorite parts is SCHOOL TOURS!
Spring is the season when lots of school from all over drive out to the Sanctuary to take a tour and meet the animals of IEAS. It is on this tour that they learn about conservation, the animals, and how important they are to our world. School tours can be some of the most rewarding parts of the Education Program here at IEAS because we see first hand the effect that the IEAS residents have on the students. Something about seeing a lion right in front of you while you learn about their natural histories and conservation needs really helps the message sink in. We know that it is a once in a lifetime experience for many of the students that visit IEAS and we are so happy to give them the best and most fulfilling tour we possibly can, in terms of both FUN and EDUCATION!
IEAS truly has so much to offer and can make a morning spent touring the Sanctuary a unique, worthwhile, interesting, and exciting experience for students.
