April 28: UPDATE
Due to unfortunate circumstances, the live animal show, Zooniversity has been cancelled. However, the Biodiversity Education Center is happy to offer an impromptu Wild Day instead! This Wild Day, Saturday April 28th from 10:15am-12:15pm, will feature the aquatic ecosystem that can be found here in the Coppell Nature Park. We apologize for the inconvenience but hope to see you for this fun alternative.
