W.E.R.C.’s unique classroom programs inspire and educate children about nature, wildlife, and the environment. W.E.R.C. also offers programs on California’s Early Native Americans (CENA). The programs meet many and/or all of California’s Life Science Standards for elementary school grades K-6. See W.E.R.C’s website for details on the programs For further information or to schedule your program, contact Teresa at [email protected]

Note: W.E.R.C.’s other educational animals include a turkey vulture, red-tailed hawk, merlin falcon, opossum, pocket gopher, and gopher snake. The animals brought to the classroom will depend on the program chosen.
