  • Children visiting Irvine for a field trip today found this black rat snake caught dangerously in plastic netting. They helped us free it, and it waited with our team until it was ready for a safe release just an hour later. Fare thee well buddy!
  • Here is the rabbit class getting ready for today's Flower Ceremony marking the end of The Nature Prescool's year. Congrats!
