North American Animal Appreciation Day

October 11 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

North America is home to many different members of the human species, but did you know it’s also home to over 457 species of mammals, 914 birds, 662 reptiles, more than 300 amphibians and 4,000 known arachnids?! On Monday October 11th come visit with us as we celebrate the diversity of these amazing species right here at the Lehigh Valley Zoo during North American Animal Appreciation Day!

Children ages 2-12 are also invited to participate in our North American Animal Art Show! Create a drawing of your favorite North American animal to bring from home or stop by our artist station and have your artwork hung inside of the Zoo. Entries are limited to one per child and each artist will be entered into a raffle drawing for the chance to win a special Lehigh Valley Zoo prize! Three lucky winners will be chosen.

Plus, enter our Fishy Funday Raffle between 10:00AM-12:30PM for a chance to win the opportunity to feed our two North American river Otters during the 1:00PM keeper chat! Only 1 token per entry!

While you’re here, be sure to grab some delectable gourmet grub at Geakers and McKenzie’s Cruisin’ Kart.
