The North Carolina Zoo is offering two more Living with Nature virtual events this spring. Living with Nature is our free distance learning event series available to schools and home school groups. Each event features a different guest expert that we encourage students to interact with. This program is recommended for Middle School and High School students, but we have had younger audiences participate as well. We have pre-, post- and during the event activities available on the event webpages as well as the NCSCOS objectives they meet.
