Families4Nature Day

April 30 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Studies show that kids today spend far less time outdoors than they did just 20-30 years ago, but we're working to change that!  Join us at our first ever Families4Nature Day at the zoo.  By getting outside, families can connect with nature, appreciate the value of natural places, and experience the simple joys of the outdoors. Families4Nature is funded by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums Disney Conservation Fund and the Prophet Sisters Foundation.
