FALCONERS Saturday March 21 , 2020 10:00 AM-1:00 PM
March’s FALCONERS theme is “Sense”-sational Zoo! This is a new FALCONERS theme and we’ll be learning about the five senses, how animals use their senses to survive in the wild, and how that relates to us! Fun crafts and activities will let you discover new facts that you may have never known about the animals. Light snacks (and coffee for parents!) will be served.
We are planning to have all of the activities inside with the option to explore the zoo on your own. Please dress for the weather if you plan to go out into the zoo. The gift shop will open at 10:00 AM. The concessions will be closed during this event.
