Magnolia Trace Elementary at GWC!

We thank Magnolia Trace Elementary for their field trips to Global Wildlife Center this year. We truly appreciate the continued support of the Foundation. We received some beautiful colored pictures from Mrs. Guttuso's 2nd grade class that came on safari with us! After much deliberation we picked the top 3 from the class. Everyone did such a wonderful job and they will be displayed here at the Center. Be sure to look for them on your next visit to Global Wildlife Center.
