 “Virtual BluZoo: Invasive Species & Biodiversity Camp”

Sponsored by the Charles R. Wood Foundation

and  Stewarts Shops

Welcome to BluZoo 2020!  This year the “campers” will have the opportunity to explore ecosystems, meet animals that live in forests, streams & even your own backyard! This year’s theme is all about invasive species, & how they harm habitats. Campers will have the opportunity to create art and meet animals revolving around a variety of ecosystems.

Gimme The Details

The Charles R. Wood Foundation  & Stewarts Shops “Holiday Match” granted BluSeed funds for their 2020 BluZoo Virtual Summer Camp.  This sponsorship has allowed BluSeed & the Utica Zoo to create five science & art integrative videos & 50 kits filled with all the materials necessary for awesome art & science adventures, designed for children ages 8 to 13.  The cost of the  videos, instruction & kits, valued at 150.00 will be available for $25.00 because of the generosity of the  Charles R. Wood Foundation and Stewarts Shops!  A very big “THANK YOU” from BluSeed!

The participation kit fee is $25.00 for the entire program. You may  call 518-891-3799 to order a kit but please be aware that office hours are limited and order could be missed or delayed.

Click:  Please only 1 kit/family.

Kit includes: hand lens, bug box, forceps, field guide, bingo card, dip-net, petri dish,  acrylic paint, paint brush, assorted art paper, animal images, glue stick, pipe cleaners, paper-mache, google eyes, aluminum tin, armature wire (does not include markers, crayons, string or sticks, foil or wax paper)

Watch the Videos

Each video will introduce the viewer to a new animal, it’s habitat, what to do to protect against invasive species, and an art centered learning project.

Link  to videos will be available soon!
