Students in grades K-5 have been learning about the Wild Safari during PAL Camp this summer. Between studying the the African Safari and after the Australian Safari, we took a trip to Roosevelt Island to explore our own local “safari” with expert ranger-guided tours. Students were exposed to marshes, swamps, and forests and saw wildlife including turtles, squirrels, and plenty of butterflies. It was a great opportunity to see an organic island that is so close to home. We learned about Theodore Roosevelt’s passion for wildlife, and saw the impact his passion had on this wonderful island. Thank you to the Rangers who showed us a great time!
