Explore the Stories and Creatures of Latin America: Pebbles Center collaboration with the Audubon Nature Institute

View Full Event Description

Join us as we learn about rainforests and the creatures that live there through books and with the help of special visitors from Audubon Zoo. This program is part of the Pebbles Center series of programs on Latin America. It will incorporate S.T.E.A.M. [Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math] activities and highlight the importance of the arts. Participants will meet several animals native to Central and South America with Audubon’s Zoomobile. We will discuss their ecosystems and the challenges they face then learn how art can help conservation. A summer reading list provided by the Pebbles Center will explore the diverse geography of Latin America. If readers read all books by the end of the Summer Reading Program, they will be presented with an honorable award during the annual Celebración Latina at the Zoo this Fall 2019.

Sponsored by the Audubon Nature Institute and Tulane University’s Stone Center for Latin American Studies.
