September 2011 Events at the Buffalo Zoo

The summer might be starting to wind down a bit, but that doesn’t mean the activity stops. Here is a list of some of the things happening at the Zoo in September.


3 Enriching Zoo Animals Wild Workshop

This is a family workshop not to be missed! Throughout the workshop we will learn about animal behavior as we prepare various treats for the animals and meet up with the zookeepers. Get a chance to see the animals interact with the treats you made for them! The workshop runs from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. Prices are $20 per person for members and $25 per person for non-members. Pre-paid registration is required, and all participants are required to pay the workshop fee. For more information, please call (716) 995-6128 or visit www.buffalozoo.org.
