Activities are offered on the second Saturday of every month. Each activity will focus on a different topic and lasts about 90 minutes. Participants will receive a pin at the end to add to their Jr. Keeper badge. Jr. Keepers are supervised by Zoo education staff during these events. Collect as many pins as you can! Activities may include: --Enrichment Workshops (making toys/treats for the animals) --Assisting with conservation projects --Special animal talks --Treasure hunts in the Zoo --Behind the scenes tours --Crafts and Games How do I get started?
