Zoological Society hosting family festival

HUNTSVILLE — Education is fun, but don’t tell the kids!

The North Alabama Zoological Society is holding its second annual Kids & Family Festival Saturday at Monte Sano State Park.

From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., society educators will explore nature with the children. The kids will learn, in a fun way, all about Alabama’s biodiversity.

They will learn to recognize plants, animals, and insects indigenous to North Alabama without having a pop quiz. And they will come face to face with the best of Alabama’s outdoors, without homework.

Plus, according to the teachers disguised as nature guides, it is simply a great way to get the kids – and adults – outdoors.

Food trucks, prize booths, drawings for prizes and activities mixed in with a whole lot of nature and robust outdoor fun.

The festival is free to attend, but Monte Sano State Park will charge $10 per car for parking or $5 per walk-in.

All children will be given a Kids Festival Passport when they check in.

If they visit all the designated “passport” booths and get a stamp on their passport for each, they will receive a prize.
