Children will have the opportunity to learn about local wildlife through NALZS activities and local wildlife experts. There will be several other fun activities for children to enjoy during this festival.

“Education and seeing children have that “ah-ha” moment are core to what NALZS has set out to do. Through our nature camps, our nationally certified Frog Watch program, our afterschool clubs and events like this - we are just getting started. I’m proud of the work our volunteers are doing and I hope our community comes out and has a blast,” said NALZS Executive Director Ethan Woodruff.
