World Lion Day

Thursday, August 10, 2017

World Lion Day is the first global campaign to celebrate the importance of the lion worldwide. Since the dawn of man the lion has played an integral role in our lives: symbolically, religiously, culturally, economically and biologically. To lose the lion from our world would be to lose part of our global heritage. Be sure to visit on August 10 to learn more about these incredible animals. Upcountry Museum will be here to showcase an upcoming hands-on-exhibit "The World of Jan Brett" focusing on favorite characters including the lion. Who knows, we may have a costumed character visit the zoo on this day for fun!
