The WisCorps Environmental Education Program’s goal is to provide as much access to our lessons on the natural world as possible. In order to reach school groups that are unable to visit our home base in the Myrick Park Center, we have established The CritterMobile, a roving habitat for native animals and source of creative environmental lessons. The CritterMobile operates in association with the programs that WisCorps staff facilitate in and around the Myrick Park Center.
