Description: Mill Mountain Zoo continues the Breakfast with the Animals series with the event titled "Treats with Turtles and Tortoises" on Saturday, July 17, 2021.

A variety of turtles and tortoises call Mill Mountain Zoo home. Join us for breakfast and learn some fascinating information about these amazing reptiles. Following the keeper chats, guests will be able to design a “stained glass” turtle or tortoise to take home with them.

Join us at the Mill Mountain Zoo every 3rd Saturday in May through 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 art project. This program is designed to further foster excitement and knowledge about the featured animals.
