On Friday, September 20, 2019, Gifted & Talented students in grades 1 - 6 were transported to the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere in Nashville, Tennessee. Students learned about animal care, behavior, and conservation. The zoo's newest exhibits includes Sumatran tigers, Andean bears, spider monkeys, and white rhinos. Students even got to touch several animals as they walked inside the Kangaroo Kickabout, Shell Station (tortoises), and the Critter Encounters. As a special treat, they got to participate in the Lorikeet Landing Feeding Experience.
