The Birmingham Zoo invites the entire community to take part in special activities planned for Spring Break 2014 from March 22 – 29. Guests are invited to soak up the sun and pay a visit to their favorite Zoo animals this Spring Break at the Birmingham Zoo. Seasonal favorites such as Predator Zone, Children’s Zoo Splash Pads, Wildlife Shows, and more are back just in time for the warmer weather. Members and guests can take a memorable camel ride (additional charge) or simply view the camels as they move through the exhibit. On March 22 and 29 from 11:30am-1pm, Get Rhythm® will provide an hour and a half interactive “community music-making experience” in Trails of Africa using drums and percussion from around the world. “We want all visitors to know that they can enjoy Spring Break and what the Zoo has to offer right here in the great City of Birmingham,” says Katrina Cade, Vice President of Marketing and Media at the Birmingham Zoo. In addition to Spring Break activities, the Birmingham Zoo is hosting a variety of Spring Break Camps, lasting from March 24-28. Camp events include exclusive behind-the-scenes tours, train and carousel rides, animal demonstrations and a one-of-a-kind learning experience.
