Irvine Nature Center’s annual visit to Gerstell Academy has quickly become a favorite leadership circle among students and faculty alike. This year, the Lower School welcomed Emily Ludo, Manager of After School Programs, who shared her passion for animal rescue and rehabilitation. This interactive program provided students with the opportunity to observe live animal ambassadors and artifacts and learn how each animal’s physical and behavioral traits help them survive in their habitats. The students met a toad, a turtle, a snake, and an owl. Animal artifacts, including deer antlers, snakeskin, a preserved squirrel, the shell of a turtle and the pelts from a beaver and fox were also discussed and on display.
Thank you, Irvine Nature Center for another fantastic presentation!
