Make Plans to Attend the Seventh Annual Tails in the Trails at the Birmingham Zoo

On Friday, April 28, from 6:30-10:30pm, the Birmingham Zoo’s Junior Board will host its seventh annual fundraising event, Tails in the Trails, by presenting sponsor Zekelman Industries, and featured partners O’Neal Industries and McGriff, Seibels and Williams, Inc. Attendees will enjoy live music by Gentleman Zero, food by Happy Catering Company, animal encounters, an online silent auction and a cash bar. Tickets are $25 online until April 28 and $30 at the door on the day of the event. Tails in the Trails will be an evening full of entertainment in the Junior League of Birmingham – Hugh Kaul Children’s Zoo. This event is for ages 21 and up only. Animal habitats will be closed during Tails in the Trails. Attire is casual.

The Birmingham Zoo’s Junior Board strives to increase Zoo membership, assist with events and provide promotion of the Zoo’s overall mission, “Inspiring Passion for the Natural World.” Guests will have the opportunity to symbolically adopt Attila or Phoenix, the Zoo’s golden eagles. Net proceeds from the event will benefit the new golden eagle habitat coming to the Birmingham Zoo.

The online silent auction is live now and can be found here. Attendance at Tails in the Trails is not required to participate in the auction.
