Family Day: July 16, 2014
To celebrate zookeepers and get kids motivated to explore a career in science, we invite you to join the Henry Vilas Zoo team as we teach kids and their families what it takes to care for the animals at our Zoo. Through the day of activities, guests will participate in a scavenger hunt and fun, educational activities designed to get the whole family involved. Help us groom the zookeepers, veterinarians, and zoologists of tomorrow by supporting this special day at the Zoo. Families will also learn about some of the Zoo's animals and hear from the Zoo's veterinarian. To make this day even more exciting we will be celebrating the Friends of the Henry Vilas Zoo's 100th year!
There is no admission charge for this event.
