Vulture Awareness Day!
Saturday 01 September 2018, 10:00am - 01:00pm

Circle over to the Forgotten Forest for family activities. Activities take place at the new outdoor wolf habitat patio where you can see Sammy the Zoo's impressive turkey vulture.

Learn how vultures catch their prey, and how vomit plays a role in defense of predators. Compare your "armspan" with the wingspan of a vulture. Check out feathers, eggs, bones and skulls from vultures at the biofacts station.

Kids can color a vulture puppet to take home. Hear keeper chats and observe the birds as they receive enrichment.

Admission $5.00. Members FREE.

Train and carousel rides. $1 per person/per ride.
