Zoos are great places to learn about animals from around the world. But what kind of wilderness can you explore in a nearby park or even your own back yard? Make a nature journal, meet animals that make their home in Missouri and Illinois, and practice using your observation skills to discover the wonderful biodiversity in your own community.
