There to greet them will be a menagerie of farm life including chickens, cows, ducks, goats, horses,         pigs, and sheep.

The event will provide hands-on, real-world learning experiences that supplement what youngsters are learning in science class. Their tour guides will be Burbank agriculture students, whose well-established program will be offered next school year to teens throughout Bexar County as an SAISD Magnet.
