Riverbanks Zoo Kids' Commission

This year I was selected to be on the first ever Riverbanks Zoo Kids' Commission. This is a group of 9 kids who help make decisions for the zoo. The commission elected me to be the chairman, which is a real honor. In December we were invited to the opening night of The Lights Before Christmas and were introduced to the board members and sponsors. Here I am with Satch Krantz (the zoo's CEO),some of the other Kids' Commission members, and checking out the light with my sister.

A Nature walk with Rudy Mancke


In November, I went on a great Nature walk with Rudy Mancke, South Carolina ETV's famous Naturalist. Congaree National Park sponsors this event as the annual Harry Hampton Memorial Walk. It was a cold, rainy day, but it was an interesting walk and Mr. Mancke shared information about SC plants and wildlife. He was very nice and wise. Hopefully, we can do it again next year and it wont rain and we'll be able to see more animals.

Spot the Gecko

This is my Leopard Gecko, Spot. I bought him at Repticon. Geckos make great pets for first time lizard owners.
