Nov. 23- Animal Thanksgiving
Animal Thanksgiving is the day we enjoy watching some of our favorite animals receive special Thanksgiving treats made by keepers and the families who visit the Zoo. Animal Thanksgiving allows volunteers and our community an opportunity to participate in a program that helps to enrich the lives of our animals by promoting their natural instincts and keeping them mentally and physically stimulated.
Games, crafts and activities in the plaza from 10-2 including take home thanksgiving crafts, make your own enrichment for your pet, and of course creating enrichment for our zoo animals!
