Long Island Game Farm Announces Opening of Erik’s Reptile Edventure Discovery Center
On May 23, the Long Island Game Farm — Wildlife Park & Children’s Zoo will unveil Erik’s Reptile Edventure Discovery Center to educate families and children on exotic amphibians and reptiles, including snakes, lizards, tarantulas, salamanders, and a variety of insects. Now, guests will have the opportunity to learn about these cold-blooded, mysterious creatures through Erik Callendar, of Erik’s Reptile Edventures, a charismatic reptile educator who has a passion for teaching children about reptile life.
Since 2006, Erik has been performing live reptile shows at schools and local events throughout New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Madagascar. His mission is to share knowledge and academic growth to help preserve natural places in our world and cultivate a love for nature. In addition, Erik founded the non-profit organization, Wildlife Kids Club International, which builds Nature Education Centers to provide environmental education to children in the United State and in impoverished villages worldwide.
Erik’s Reptile Edventure Center will be located at the far end of the Game Farm. Children will get to meet over 10 species of animals and learn intriguing facts about each animal’s lifestyle from Erik’s experiences. Additionally, Erik’s Reptile Edventures will provide video sessions from all over the world. This activity will be extremely beneficial for children, due to the exciting, hands-on educational experience, which has proven to be the most efficient way to learn. Children should get ready for stimulating lessons on creepy crawlers!
