International Red Panda Day
September 9 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Stop by the red panda habitat to learn more about these endangered animals at our Red Panda Discovery Station and check out a sales table with red panda themed crafts – including paintings made by the NEW Zoo’s very own resident red pandas! Guests can also enjoy several presentations throughout the day, including Zookeeper Chats with training and enrichment demonstrations at 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. respectively, along with a Red Panda Feeding at 1:45 p.m. A new graphic highlighting our community’s connection to red pandas will be on display for guests to view at the panda habitat, as well. Funds for the graphic and several weeks’ worth of food for the zoo’s red pandas were donated by the Van Handel Family, in memory of Jerry Van Handel.
