CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. – The Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center invites the public to view live feedings of the center’s resident reptiles, amphibians and fish Thursday, July 7, from 1 to 2 p.m.

“A lot of people ask us what the feeding routine is for our resident animal educators,” said Sara Turner, the Nature Center Manager. “Watching how the animals eat can help people understand what they need in their natural habitat and gain a better understanding of the different animal species.”

Turner said the resident reptiles, amphibians and fish are fed a smorgasbord of crickets, worms, minnows and more. The feeding routine is maintained by the center’s dedicated volunteers and staff.

Turner said this free program is open to all ages and groups. No registration is required. For more information on this and other programs at the Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center, go online to www.mdc.mo.gov/CapeNatureCenter or call (573)290-5218.
