Description:
Mill Mountain Zoo presents Breakfast with the Animals: Eating with the Endangered on Saturday, October 21, 2017.

Did you know last week was Wolf Awareness Week and that Mill Mountain Zoo is home to red wolves, which are one of the most endangered species in the world? Come for some tasty breakfast and learn about our red wolves and interesting information about some of our other endangered species as well. Following that, guests will do a 3-dimensional Model Magic sculpture of their favorite endangered species and do an activity sheet related to those animals.

Join us at the Mill Mountain Zoo every 3rd Saturday, May-October for a unique opportunity to have breakfast with the animals. Guests will be treated to a light breakfast buffet and the chance to meet one of the zoo’s education outreach animals. This will be immediately followed by a special chat with zookeepers as they amaze our guests with more fun and educational facts about our animal residents.

This intimate experience will allow zoo visitors to learn more about various animals’ diets, behavior and personalities. Following the chat, there will be a child-focused and parent-assisted project and activity sheet that will be designed to further foster excitement and knowledge about the featured animals.

The cost ranges from $9.00-$15.00 depending on age and whether you are a member of the Mill Mountain Zoo. Family Four Packs are also available.

Reservations are required. Space is limited!
