On Saturday, October 23rd, our Zone D participants (ages 10-13 from English, Chess, and French classes) went wild over the Huachipa Zoo exhibits. Light and Leadership took 17 eager kids on a tour of the zoo. Our happy kids saw lions, tigers and... anacondas! We ended the day with a excellent workshop on Biodiversity, where kids learned the importance of taking care of the environment. Thanks Huachipa Zoo!
Check out the photos below... we might be heading back soon as well with another group of kids, so stay tuned!
Whoa Anaconda! While the kids looked on in amazement, most of the volunteers were remembering the awesomely bad 90's movie "Anaconda" with Jennifer Lopez and Ice-Cube. Sweet.
Fiorella, Yahaira, and Nicol pumped and ready to water the plants in the Huachipa garden after the workshop.
Once again, special thanks to our volunteers Franzi Weil (trip coordinator), Christine Garcia (English and Chess teacher), Adam Hettler (dedicated commuter volunteer (and friend Tania!)) and Sarah Renkert (all around fantastic House Manager) for this wildly successful trip.
