 Young at HART (YAH):


Book your place now to participate in our Safari North Adventure this season at our newly renovated shelter. Our education room has been completely redone, and we are planning a special year of Young at HART to celebrate our grand re-opening.

Our first regular meeting, the first Saturday of October, we will take a field trip to Safari North and visit animals from six continents. Each subsequent first Saturday of the month, we will focus our attention on specific animals we met at the zoo. Every class, after the field trip ,we will also visit the HART animals, do a craft, enjoy a snack, and, if time permits, read a related story.

Since the field trip occurs on our first regular meeting, I am requiring all children registering for Young at HART attend a one hour orientation on Saturday, September 27, at 10:00 a.m., our regular meeting time. At the orientation we will get to know one another, pay registration and field trip fees, and make specific plans for the field trip on the following Saturday. If you are still riding in a car seat, your parent will be asked to drive you to the zoo and help chaperone. The only exception to this is if your parent can make arrangements with another parent to do this.

Registration cost for Young at HART remains the same as last year: $25.00 for one child; $40.00 for two children; and $50.00 for three or more children. In addition each child will be required to pay for zoo admittance at the reduced rate of $6.00. Also chaperones/parents will enjoy this same admittance fee.

Registration forms as well as a sheet of shelter guidelines will be available on-line and at the shelter beginning August 1. Students failing

to attend the orientation session will not be allowed to go on the field trip.

Due to our rising costs for education, we are again unable to offer scholarships for Young at HART.
