The past few weeks have been busy with zoo happenings. The Dallas Zoo celebrated the 125th Birthday of the zoo on April 6 and 7th. There is a book that documents some of the history of the zoo. I haven’t gotten my hands on the book yet but hope to. Reading the few page history I have the zoo has come a long way and especially in the last few years. I’m excited about the education growth in the future.
For the 125th Bday party the Green Team had a booth of 125 Ways to help Wildlife. Kids got involved and it was a blast. As the chair of the Green Team I compiled the list of 125 items. It was a fun challenge and I’m thrilled to now have the list for other purposes as well. I need to upload it to the blog… Keep an eye out.
Next was Homeschool Day. A day blocked from schools attending and therefore only for the general public and homeschool kids and families. I created a 20 page activity book for participants. Inside their Dallas Zoo backpack were Naima items. I call them that because I love meaningful crippycrap, and that’s what it was. A UV watch that was attached with an activity, a giraffe puzzle and more. Homeschool families also enjoyed keeper talks, community partner booths, zoo booths and special animal adventure shows.
Last but not least David and I stopped by the Deep Ellum Arts Festival in downtown Dallas. The ultimate best part was this amazing crepe!! Oh so yumtastic.
Until next time crepe.
