On Tuesday, November 10th, thirty-eight AES students in the Gifted & Talented program visited the Salato Wildlife Education Center in Frankfort. Students participated in the Kentucky Mammals program, learning about mammals' special features that help them survive in their environment. Students also learned how mammals are classified into groups based on these adaptations or by their diet. The interactive and hands-on program involved lots of furs, bones, and teeth. At the conclusion of the program, students explored both the inside and outside exhibits, while completing a scavenger hunt. They saw many animals, including whitetail deer, wild turkeys, a bald eagle, and a black bear.
