MAC Homeschool Day at the Big Joel’s Safari – Fall 2021

              MAC Homeschool Day at the Zoo – Fall Edition is scheduled for Monday & Tuesday, Sept 27th and 28th.

The Missouri Association for Creation has another amazing tour planned to declare God’s awesome wisdom and abundant goodness!  In light of the continued regulations at the St. Louis Zoo, we are moving our Zoo Tour out to Big Joel’s Safari in Wright City!  The whole event will be outside and wearing masks is optional.  Not only that, but the animals can come right up to the fence and you can get an up-close look at them – and even feed them if you want!   Camel and pony rides are also available.  This will provide a Zoo Tour event like we’ve never had before!!

  • Learn about the amazing design features of God’s creatures from MAC speakers, and see those animals up close at the Zoo. Special presentations on the following animals:
    Camels, Zebras, Porcupines, Kangaroos, and more
  • Receive a colorful, informational booklet on the animals, with “fill-in the blanks” from the speaker’s presentation. These are great for later family discussions.

  • Ask the speakers questions about these animals, or anything else about how God created our world and us.

“But ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you; or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you.
Who among all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind.” Job 12:7-10 (ESV)
