Cardinal Stritch Academy welcomes Nature’s Nursery

Press Staff Writer

        On March 9, Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School & Academy welcomed Nature’s Nursery Center for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation Education outreach staff, who presented the program, “Fur, Feathers, and Scales: What makes a Bird, Herptile or Mammal?”
        First-grade Cardinals met an albino Cardinal who wasn’t truly white, a turtle friend named Lefty, and Greta, an opossum who had to be woken up from her nap.
        Nature’s Nursery reaches more than 15,000 children and adults through wildlife education programs with their non-releasable education animal ambassadors. The education ambassadors help them to teach the importance of local wildlife populations, how to protect their habitats and how to best live in harmony with the wildlife in their own backyards.
        According to Karen Kimerer, a first-grade teacher at Cardinal Stritch, “For the past month, first-graders have discussed and studied different habitats and living/nonliving things. We've talked about ways we can help animals and ways animals are helpers to us as humans. Students will make habitat dioramas and write a research report about the animals they will be making for their diorama.”
        Both first grade classrooms also collected “Wish List” items for Nature’s Nursery in support of their mission.
