Scheduled Events

FALCONERS “Water, Water Everywhere”

Saturday July 21: 8:00 AM-11:00 AM

Our July theme is “Water, Water Everywhere”! About 71 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered by water! 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 if you wish.  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.

FUTURE FALCONERS DATES

Saturday August 18: 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM 

Our August theme is “What’s for Lunch?”!  There are a lot of different animals at the zoo, and they eat a lot of different things!  We’ll explore what animals eat at the zoo and in the wild, how animals hunt, and how they avoid being hunted!  Participants will be able to enter the zoo at 8:00 AM, 1 hour before it opens to the public, but they may arrive later if they wish.  Activities will continue until 11:00 AM, and families may engage in as many or as few as they wish.
