Beneficial Beasts and Where to Find Them

This month, Bob Tarter, owner of Natural History Educational Company of the Midsouth (NHECM), brought his latest wildlife program, Beneficial Beasts, to four Decatur elementary schools.
 
Tarter is a wildlife biologist, and it's clear he considers the educational content of his show the most important part. The exhibits, like his angora rabbit, silkie chicken, and British labrador retriever, draw kids in and keep their attention on him as he teaches foundational biology through his program.
 
It's great to see students so engaged in learning science!
