Genesee Trail Day: October 4, 2014

The Zoo's docents will share the storied history of the Genesee River, the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) and Seneca Park. Our friends from Ganondagan will be there with their impressive display of Seneca Nation artifacts, too.

Dabble Box: Kids will learn how raccoons find their food as they use their sense of touch to locate a human treat among the fake bugs, snakes and fish. Fun! 

Seneca Clan Animals - Deer, Wolf, Bear: Various skulls and claws will be available to help you learn about these mammals.

Seneca Clan Animals - Beaver and Friends: Learn about the Zoo's conservation stories involving otters, sturgeons and bog turtles!

Eagles, our local story: Eagles have been an important part of Seneca tradition - the Seneca headdress has one eagle feather. You'll also learn about the return of eagles to Irondequoit Bay.

Seneca Clan Animals - Heron, Hawk, Snipe:
Learn all about birds by checking out skulls, feathers, wings and feet!
When: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Cost: The Docent-run event is free with Zoo admission.
