Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sleep near wild animals?  5th and 6th grade 4-H members from five counties (Boone, Greene, Hardin, Marshall & Story) are invited to participate in a campout at the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, Nebraska on Friday, May 29th through Saturday, May 30th.  4-H’ers will sleep near the animals and experience the Henry Doorly Zoo in a fun new way!     They will experience the Lozier IMAX Theater.  The screen is as tall as four giraffes and as wide as seven rhinos.  There are six speakers that each weigh as much as a Siberian Tiger.  You won’t want to miss this!   For registration information, please contact your local ISU Extension Office.  For trip questions, please contact Natalie Hedlund at natm@iastate.edu or (515) 432-3882.
