Join us at the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo for the Families4Nature kick-off celebration Saturday, April 30th  from 11 am to 3 pm!

This intiative encourages families to get outside, whether on their own or through one of the many events and programs hosted in collaboration with the ERC and Little River Wetlands Project.

The Families4Nature Zoo Day features different booths hosted by the three organizations, all with activities that can count towards the Nature Passport and into a free children’s zoo admission ticket. Children can visit various stations throughout the Zoo and earn twenty points on their printed passport by attending this event.

Regular Zoo admission rates apply.
