Lizzy the Red-Tail Hawk and Snapper the Barred Owl visited the Day Campers at the Manchester Recreation Department. Melissa Jones, Park Ranger at Paris Landing State Park accompanied the feathered friends and answered camper’s questions. Keith Wimberley-Park Manager at Old Stone Fort State Park, invited Jones, Lizzy and Snapper for this teaching session at the Rec Center. Wimberley said, “Teahing the children about our native wildlife gives them an appreciation for the animals…and hopefully they will help protect them and their environment in the future.”
The Manchester Recreation Department has day camp available for children age 5-12. Visit cityofmanchestertn.com for more information.
