Featuring Wildlife Walk at the Zoo and Puppet Making Workshop.
Join park educators at Trailside Museums & Zoo on July 27th from 10:30 am to 11:45 am on a Wildlife Walk at the Zoo and learn about Birds of Prey. Examine bird biofacts up close, including feathers, skulls, and eggs. Then enjoy a guided tour of Trailside's bird area and Nature Study Museum.
Recommended for families with children ages 5 and up. Rain or shine. No registration required.
Then, come back to the Zoo on Wednesday, July 30th from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm for a Puppet Making Workshop. Join Zoo educators in this hands-on workshop to help build and decorate a larger-than-life snake puppet to be used in the Endangered Species Parade at Bear Mountain State Park on Saturday, September 27th. Enjoy a brief guided tour of the snake exhibits in the Reptile and Amphibian Museum. Trailside will safely guard the puppet until the parade - you can sign up to march! This is a fun, creative opportunity to promote conservation in our local community!
