Zootastik Learning Fest: World Ocean’s Day

Join us for Zootastik Learning Fest as we celebrate World Ocean’s Day on Saturday, June 10 and Sunday, June 11. The theme for 2017 is “Healthy Oceans, Healthy Planet”.  The ocean is the heart of our planet. Like your heart pumping blood to every part of your body, the ocean connects people across the Earth, no matter where we live. The best part is, everyone plays a part to keep it safe and healthy! Kids will learn how much water we use for daily activities and how we can reduce that amount. Discover how we are directly connected to the oceans through rivers and other waterways that lead right to the oceans and explore a variety of animals that live in our freshwater and saltwater bodies.

Zootastik Learning Fest activities take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the lobby and are included in Zoo admission.
