Pittsburg State’s Nature Reach Program is inviting you to take a walk on the wild side next week.
Nature Reach will host an open house in Heckert-Wells, the building that hosts the biology department, next Tuesday. Program director Delia Lister says they’ll have several of their nearly 50 species of mammals, birds and reptiles on hand for you to meet. She says they want to give you a chance to see first hand how the program works with kids to help expand on what they’ve learned in school.
“We don’t have a lot of time in science class anymore with kids to talk about nature, to get them excited about going outside, to get them to care about the environment,” says Delia Lister.
The open house will take place on World Wildlife Day, next Tuesday. The open house will run from four in the afternoon through six that evening in Heckert-Wells Room 328. PSU president Dr. Steve Scott will be on hand to offer remarks.
