Much To-Do at the Zoo

Zookeeper, Christina Eastwood is welcoming our Dallas County 4-H members to come help work behind the scenes making enrichment toys for the animals at the Dallas Zoo on Saturday, January 17th. 

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Zookeeper Eastwood informed me of a few changes. She has received approval for us to work behind the scenes in a DIFFERENT part of the zoo. YEAH! However, that being said the new area will not have restrooms or water access. She is planning to make a bathroom stop before heading to the work area and before starting the tour. All attendees must bring adequate water with them for the duration of the event.
 
Arrival time is 11:45 am. This will be on a come, first serve basis, so if you would like to attend do not wait to e-mail Tamra at tdmcgaughy@ag.tamu.edu . Volunteer forms and parking instructions and passes will be emailed on Friday to registered families.

The final R.S.V.P. day will be Friday, January 16th! 

 Also, if you have not order a 4-H Zoo t-shirt yet, there is still time. We need more orders to get the cost down.    Cost: $13 each

Send a check to Dallas 4-H Fund, with a statement telling me the exact shirt sizes you will need. Mail to: Dallas County 4-H, 10056 Marsh Ln, Suite B-101 Dallas Texas 75229.
