Wildlife education sessions online daily from KDFW

From Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife

Frankfort, KY - With schools across Kentucky ceasing in-class instruction due to COVID-19, teachers and students can continue receiving wildlife conservation programming normally taught in the classroom.

Starting today, Wednesday, March 18, 2020, conservation educators with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources will be hosting special Facebook Live sessions at 1pmET on weekdays.

These sessions will live stream on the Salato Wildlife Education Center's Facebook page (@SalatoWildlifeEducationCenter) and continue for approximately 30 minutes.

"Team Kentucky is excited to offer our children and families an educational experience that allows children to learn about our state's wildlife species from their homes," Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear said. "I encourage families across the Commonwealth to take advantage of this virtual opportunity to help keep our children engaged in learning as we all come together to combat the coronavirus."

Kentucky Fish and Wildlife operates the Salato Wildlife Education Center in Frankfort to foster an appreciation for the state's native wildlife species and their conservation, as well as the importance of fishing, hunting, boating and related recreation opportunities.

The Salato Center remains open Tuesday through Saturday for outdoor exhibits with no admission fee. Indoor exhibits are currently closed to the public.

For the latest information about the Salato Center, please visit its webpage on Kentucky Fish and Wildlife's website and follow its Facebook page.
