Lake Superior Zoo turns grounds into education hub

In the spirit of Endangered Species Day Friday, the Lake Superior Zoo turned its grounds into an oasis of education.

It’s all part of the 15th annual Earth Tracks event.

Wildlife biologists, naturalists, and environment educators across the region were on hand to answer questions, and provide steps you can take to help protect the environment.

The public was invited to check out 16 hands-on exhibits, such as bats, sea lamprey, frogs and wolves. 

The event focuses on how important it is to protect endangered species.

"So, we are able to focus a lot of our learning today on endangered species," says LS Zoo director of education Sarah Wilcox, "which part of our mission at the zoo is educating people about endangered species and conservation."

Guest panels included speakers from Jay Cooke State Park, the Midwest Peregrine Society, and WLSSD.
