On April 12, the Birmingham Zoo invites the whole family to take part in Farm Day from 10am to 2pm. This fun-filled and educational celebration of Alabama’s farming heritage will be held in the Junior League of Birmingham – Hugh Kaul Children’s Zoo. Farm Day is a community focused event to celebrate the agricultural history of Alabama with a special emphasis on Birmingham Zoo farm animals. Guests will have the opportunity to watch a blacksmith make horseshoes, create rural-themed arts and crafts, examine several antique tractors and farm equipment, plant garden crop seeds and much more. Booths from Alabama 4-H, Alabama Cooperative Extension System, Alabama Farmers Federation/Alabama Young Farmers, Blacksmiths and Junior Master Gardeners will be onsite to give guests the opportunity to learn about farm tools, agriculture and local farming opportunities. There will also be a Wildlife Show at the Wildlife Stage after the Farm Day activities. All Farm Day activities are free with admission to the Zoo.
