"I can't thank you enough for spending so much time teaching my daughter all about Bees!  She said it was the most exciting part of our Zoo visit.  She retained all the information explained to her, and has been telling her friends about the various types of bees, what they feed on, and of course “the stinger!”

For a four year old to remember this much information means the person explaining it is a gifted teacher.  The gentleman who worked with us yesterday was exactly that!

We have never had a reason to become members of the Zoo, but we do now.  This is an incredible program. Thanks for all you do!"

- Rebecca, on the Nature Swap program
