“The first year that I was here [five years ago] we had [Zooniversity],” Hull said. “I’ve been wanting to get her back, but we didn’t have the funding. We had a lot of contributions from the community, so we were able to get her again this year.”
Hull heads up Boyce Ditto’s summer reading program, which rewards kids with different prizes for reading. The program also holds various weekly performances and craft projects for fun, educational activities. Hull said she hopes kids and their families found the presentation informative and enjoyable.
“Hopefully they learned to respect animals. I think they did a good job following the rules and hopefully they learned a lot about habitats and things like that. Hopefully they’ll remember it,” she said with a smile and a wink.
Next up for the summer reading program is their summer ending party on July 26 at 10:30 a.m at Lamar. Hull said Snake Encounters will be back for the third consecutive year.
“It’s the most popular [show] that we have,” she said.
