A little rain didn't stop the Zoo Teens from making fun animal treats and sharing with the visitors! Thanks to the Zoo Teens for their hard work.
Zoo Teens are 13 to 19-year-old volunteers interested in animals, the earth, and the community who spend their weekends at the Sacramento Zoo. Zoo Teens develop their own ideals, views, and passions to encourage Zoo patrons become better stewards of the Earth. I Heart Sacramento Zoo will give the teen volunteers experience communicating with the public and offer visitors an opportunity to learn more about the Zoo’s unique animals.
Here is a video of a pinata made by the Zoo Teens for the giraffes.
