Purchase your tickets NOW for this fabulous fundraiser benefiting the future Cougar Crossing habitat! Your Birmingham Zoo’s Junior Board invites you to their 13th Annual ‘Tails in the Trails event, presented by Abacus Investments, on Friday, May 5th from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Come party with us on the Trails of Africa at this outdoor celebration with music, animal encounters, small bites from area restaurants, beer, wine, specialty cocktails, and a silent auction!

The official ‘Tails in the Trails cocktails this year are the Cougar Cocktail rum punch and the Moyo Margarita. Both wild libations have been specially crafted for the event with nods to your Zoo’s resident animal friends.
