Education Center open house

March 5, 2017 - 10:00am to 04:00pm

Explore the new Education Center and meet conservation experts – including Smokey Bear! Visitors will get a first look at the Nature Exploration Station (featuring interactive learning experiences and comic books about local "conservation heroes"), the new Insect Zoo and the Species Conservation Lab, where tiny turtles are raised for release. Free with zoo admission, the Education Center open house will also host activities by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the U.S. Forest Service, Metro Parks and other regional conservation agencies.
