NIDC Gets Wild

Our adventurous youth welcomed the folks at New York Wild! to NIDC with open arms during Easter break. 

As part of New York Wild!’s “Bring The Zoo To You” program, students in grades K-5 had the opportunity to get up close and personal with snapping turtles, burmese pythons, American alligators, bullfrogs, and other reptiles. New York Wild! director, Erik Zeidler began the day with an exciting presentation that took students on a journey through the reptile kingdom before opening the floor for show and tell.
