Kids get a closer look at the wild side today at ‘Handle with Care’ daycare

Local News

Students at a local daycare are getting a look into the wild today.

Handled with Care, a daycare in the 900 block of State Street has some special visitors today.  Kids are taking part in an educational program called, ‘All Things Wild’.  Presenters are giving students a first-hand look at wild animals like chinchillas, birds, snakes, and even a 180 point tortoise. 

Will Thacker, of All Things Wild, says, “It’s become our mission to share our wild creatures with people of ages so that they take away from that connection a lasting… a good feeling about wildlife and they remember that not only is wildlife dwindling but habitats are being converted”.

Organizers say it’s important children and adults understand that many wildlife animals are in trouble.
