Around Campus: Edmonton

At Edmonton Valley Zoo for the Day! The Community Outreach Events (CORE) that are part of MaKami’s curriculum are so many things wrapped into one neat package. They are hands-on experience outside the classroom, and they are a fantastic source for networking to build your own client base. But they are more than that, they are also a lot of fun! Going to places and having experiences you may not have otherwise gotten, like hanging out with an Elephant, or seeing baby red pandas at the Edmonton Valley Zoo!
