Second Annual Pardoning of the Birmingham Zoo Turkeys

The Birmingham Zoo is kicking-off the Thanksgiving Holiday by holding the second annual ceremony to pardon the Zoo’s turkeys at 10:15am on Wednesday, November 22. Chris Pfefferkorn, Birmingham Zoo Senior Vice President will address those in attendance at the Zoo’s turkey exhibit on the Alabama Wilds Trail. This event will be a fun and educational way for those in attendance to learn about turkeys, which are indigenous to Alabama, and how the Zoo works to conserve native species. The Birmingham Zoo is also giving back to the community this week by offering half-price admission on Tuesday.
