FALCONERS is designed to allow children or adults of all ages with special needs and unique challenges (such as autism or developmental disabilities) and their whole family to have an enriching educational experience in a safe and welcoming environment.
March’s FALCONERS theme is AZA SAFE: Saving Animals From Extinction! SAFE is an effort among accredited zoos, aquariums, researchers and conservationists to save endangered species all over the world! Our black rhinoceros, African lions, and many other zoo residents are part of the program! Discover how Potter Park Zoo participates in this important work, learn how the zoo staff takes care of our animals, and have fun with hands on activities throughout the zoo. Light snacks (and coffee for parents!) will be served.
Activities will be mainly inside buildings, but be sure to dress for the weather for travel between buildings. Please pre-register to get free admission to the zoo and access to the activities. The concession stands will be closed during this event.
