Birmingham Zoo ROCKS this Saturday

The Birmingham Zoo is excited to invite the community to “Birmingham Zoo ROCKS”, an all-new event this Saturday. On October 7 from 9am to 5pm, the Zoo will be offering free admission to children who bring their own decorated rock to the Zoo.

The premise is simple: gather a few supplies (flat, paintable rocks, acrylic paint, sealer, paint brushes), decorate your rock – getting as creative as you like – and seal it. The Zoo will have painted Zoo themed rocks in the new Henley Park event lawn that guests can find and take out into the community to be re-hidden. Participants are invited to bring their own painted rock to leave in Henley Park at the Zoo and to take a new rock home with them. Guests can also post a photo of the rock with the hashtag #BhamZoo of the Zoo rocks found within the community.
