Local Libraries Hosting ‘Zoo to You’ Wildlife Education Program for Families

The Santa Barbara Public Library System presents Zoo to You, an educational experience about the world of animals and conservation.

Designed to fit the California Science Framework, Zoo to You’s conservation ambassadors introduce the audience to their animal friends, while teaching the importance of providing homes for displaced, abused and abandoned animals. Zoo to You brings education and adventure together to create an unforgettable learning experience. This event is best for children age 5 or older.

The Santa Barbara Public Library System invites families and children to an educational experience by Zoo to You on the following dates:

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
