Thanks to a donation from the U.S. Bank Foundation, first and second grade students in Pocatello/Chubbuck School District #25 will be getting in touch with the wild. Monday, U.S. Bank presented Zoo Idaho officials with a $5,000 check to help fund the zoo’s “Habitracker” outreach program and provide a field trip for second graders during the spring of 2017. “We’d like to thank the U.S. Bank Foundation for their continued commitment to Zoo Idaho and helping educate children about wildlife” said Peter Pruett, Zoo Idaho Superintendent. “Because of their gift, we’re helping to inspire the next generation of zookeepers, biologists, and scientists.” This year’s outreach program is titled “Home is Where the Habitat is” and seeks to teach children about the many different types of habitats around the globe and the animals that live in them. Zoo staff will also be teaching students about habitat conservation efforts in Idaho and beyond. For more information on Zoo Idaho, visit ZooIdaho.org.
