April Events at Amarillo Zoo

Staff Writer

The Amarillo Zoo and Panhandle PBS invite families to visit the Zoo on three Saturdays in April for outdoor fun aimed at helping us become better stewards of our natural world – not just during Earth Month, but all year long!

The Saturday events are from 10 a.m. to noon on April 9th, 16th and 23rd, and families are welcome to come on one date or on all three. Kids with a paying adult get in FREE, and Zoo admission for adults is only $4 (just $3 for seniors.)

The Amarillo Zoo is located within Thompson Park, which is at N.E. 24th Avenue and the Dumas Highway.

Here are some of the fun activities families can enjoy at Earth Day … Every Day: Zoo Keepers’ visits, Zoofari carts with hands-on “touchables,” scavenger hunts, animal programs, hands-on crafts and activities, take-home materials to support local habitats, costume characters, and a “watch room” with NATURE CAT and WILD KRATTS PBS Kids programs on protecting and preserving our natural world.

Through these events, the Amarillo Zoo and Panhandle PBS will strive to create special experiences that help children and their families explore the outdoors together, while learning about protecting the animals and habitats of our planet.
