Keeper talks will highlight California condors and other “master recyclers” on Vulture Awareness Day!

On Vulture Awareness Day, the zoo will educate the community about California condors, turkey vultures and other biological waste controllers, while highlighting the critical role they play in ecosystems around the world.

There will be activities, keeper talks (at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.) and up-close views of these colorful, charismatic and critically endangered birds at the Condors of the Columbia habitat, where visitors can learn what small actions we can take to create a better future for vultures and their habitats. We will be hosting education partners to come table in the Education Center NESt with a focus on conservation actions to help wild vultures.

ZooTeens will also be in the Family Farm exhibit, providing information about these enormous birds and the actions we can take to protect them.

Free with zoo admission.

Parking is $2/hour or $8/day, and lots tend to fill up quickly—so taking public transport is encouraged. Call 503-238-RIDE (7433) or visit Trimet for fare and route information.
