THE MARYLAND ZOO IN BALTIMORE 2014 Recipient

 

THE MARYLAND ZOO IN BALTIMORE

 

               MCBF has awarded a $1,500 grant to the Maryland Zoo for its ZOOmobile educational outreach program.  This is another repeat recipient which MCBF is very proud to support.  This is a very unique educational program which takes the zoo to children in Baltimore City Title I Elementary Schools – children who might not have an opportunity to visit a zoo and see these animals.  During the ZOOmobile program, trained instructors travel to our City schools taking live animals to students and allowing them to participate in hands-on activities.  These human and animal educators help students learn important life science concepts and develop an appreciation for the natural world.  ZOOmobile programs align with state and national education curriculum standards.  The ZOOmobile program in the upcoming year will target second grade students with one of two 50 minute programs, either lessons on habitats of animals or animal classification.  For more information on the ZOOmobile program, go to www.marylandzoo.org.
