Synopsis: Two projects were developed under the Project Conservation Action Through Education (Project CATE): Rabbit’s Big Splash and Skeeter’s Wild Adventure. The purpose of these programs was to design, develop, and implement interactive learning using local, state, and regional outdoor scenes and scenarios.
