Genesee Watershed Awareness Weekend

Genesee Watershed Awareness Weekend

 Buy Tickets

- July 10 / 9:30 am

Join us as we celebrate some of the awesome animals you can find right in our own backyard as part of our Genesee Watershed Awareness Weekend! From sturgeon to river otters, snake and raccoons there will be something for everyone to get excited about. We will have animal enrichments experiences live on-site as well as sharing some great content on social.

We are also running a Facebook fundraiser that will go to support the Genesee River Watch – a great organization that works to improve the water quality of the Genesee River and its tributaries to create environmental, recreational, and economic assets for its communities. As is typical for these, we will have a drawing for a one-of-a-kind painting for everyone who donates to this fundraiser. This one will be a little different though as it will feature artwork from multiple animals! Snakes, otter and turtle all took a turn on this amazing piece of art. Be sure to donate and make plans to come out and visit the Zoo!
