Fairy Tales & Frogs

"The day focuses on frogs, but with a twist! Learn about the importance of frogs and celebrate the special role they have played in fairytales and legends throughout history. Kids 11 and younger will receive free admission to the Zoo and RainForest, with a paid adult admission, and everyone is encouraged to dress like a princess, prince or frog. Meet the Zoo's larger-than-life frog mascots and even a princess or two! Get nose-to-nose with frogs during Get-Close Encounters and decipher myth from reality by talking with the Zoo's frog keepers. Other activities include a frog craft, storytelling and an interactive life-size ""Frogger"" game that teaches the importance of frogs in our ecosystem and addresses the perils that frogs face in the wild due to pollution, climate change and habitat loss."
