July FALCONERS: Water, Water Everywhere!

July 2, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Falconers - Water, Water Everywhere banner

July 20: 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM

FALCONERS is designed to allow children or adults of all ages with special needs and unique challenges (such as autism or developmental disabilities) and their whole family to have an enriching educational experience in a safe, welcoming and sensory friendly environment. There will be one sensory friendly event in Lansing, Michigan per month throughout 2019.

The July event’s theme is “Water, Water Everywhere”! Activity stations will be set-up throughout the zoo and participants can visit them at their own pace. About 71 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered by water! Did you know our very own Great Lakes holds the most amount of freshwater? Come and learn about animals that live in and around water. You may even be able to find some of them in your own backyard. Be prepared, you might have a chance to get wet! The zoo will open one hour early (at 8:00 AM) just for FALCONERS families, but you may arrive later and still participate. Activities will continue until 11:00 AM, and families may stay and enjoy the zoo for as long as they wish.

Please pre-register to get free admission to the zoo and access to the activities. Light snacks will be provided.
