On a rare sunny November morning, Zach Hawn of Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium's Education Team helped lead Troy Hashagen's Mentor Group in a service-learning activity.
Mentees hiked out into Pt. Defiance park and placed motion-activated cameras to help document what carnivores are visiting the park. The students got a chance to discuss how animals and humans are interacting, and what citizen science can look like.
SAMI continues to build community partnerships to make learning more authentic and powerful.
