Diversity is nature’s greatest strength. It should be ours too. This unique event highlights nature’s diversity and focuses on increasing our connection to both nature and community. The fun includes exploring a section of the Zoo’s forest and browsing a sustainability market! Activities take place from 9:30 am to 1 pm.

Highlights include:

Community Tree – Our community is made up of individuals with unique strengths and identities. Share what makes you unique and add your leaf to the tree!
Sapling Handout – Learn about the importance of diversity in forests. Take home your very own white spruce sapling to plant in your yard! (Limited supplies available).
Animal Artifacts – Discover animal artifacts from around the world.
Biodiversity Guessing Game – Guess how many species are represented in an ecosystem and learn how they work together.
Wisconsin Forest Station – Explore a section of the Zoo’s forest and discover the biodiversity within our grounds! You’ll learn how to identify species and help us uncover some of the plants and animals that live among us.
