There will be restaurant and wine sampling for adults, a live and silent auction, and a Kids Zone that will have crafts, games and unique opportunities for kids to get up close and personal with our fuzzy, feathered, and scaly friends!

It is through today’s zoos that future generations will come to a greater understanding of the human impact on the natural world and be motivated to preserve it and reverse the damage already done.
