Friendsgiving at Franklin Park Zoo
November 16 @ 11:30 am - 2:30 pm
Whether it’s finding food or protecting one another, many of the animals that live at Franklin Park Zoo depend on their unique family dynamics to survive. Did you know prairie dogs have unique “barks” to warn their colony of predators, or that ring-tailed lemurs keep their tails raised like flags to keep group members together when traveling? Discover more about these special relationships as we celebrate Friendsgiving at the Zoo! Watch as animals receive festive enrichment, and learn more about these unique bonds at the education station. Like your favorite characters from the Wild West, our animal friends from the wild kingdom stick together through thick and thin. Come meet your favorite cowboy and cowgirl and learn about the bonds that bring us all together, animal, human and doll alike!”
We’ll also have scheduled zookeeper chats and a fun craft to take home.
