Creature Feature program to get kids hooked to nature

Creature Feature series on Wednesdays at the Missouri Department of Conservation.

If your child wants to learn something new about nature this summer, you don't have to go far. The Missouri Department of Conservation is the place to be.

Conservation Specialist Amanda Moore enjoys teaching elementary and middle school students about Missouri wildlife and animals.

She holds the Creature Feature series at the northeast regional conservation office in Kirksville.

Moore says she has fun with the kids as they get hands on with nature and have fun.

"Creature Feature tends to go more in depth on the topics. The kids are more advanced. They can really get into details that the pre-schoolers just aren't quite ready for. We try to make sure there's something hands on for the kids," Moore said.

The Creature Feature series is held on the second and fourth Wednesdays of every month at 3:30 p.m.
