Here’s a look at all of the events and programs currently scheduled at Riverbanks Zoo and Garden. This schedule is (of course) subject to revision. As the year goes on, please revisit this page for any changes.
Come and be BeZooJeweled! Riverbanks is excited to once again offer this “girls only” program in recognition of Endangered Species Day again this year! This will be a fun-filled evening of jewelry making, animal encounters, conservation education, and activities that will earn credits towards your badge requirements and journeys. As we travel through the layers of a tropical rainforest, we will introduce you to its hidden jewels: the bling of the jungle and the animals who reign here! You will meet a few of our animal ambassadors, learn about what you can do to help endangered animals and save their habitats, and of course, create an entire collection of your very own, unique, eco-friendly, handmade jewelry. The night will conclude with a beaded or bejeweled-themed S.W.A.P.s meet*.
Program and activities will work towards Girl Scout badge requirements for all levels that may include, but are not limited to: Daisy-Clover Petal: Use Resources Wisely, Journey — Between the Earth and Sky: Clover Award, Brownie — Eco-Explorer and Household Elf Badge. Junior: Get Moving! Jewelers Badge and Amuse: Animals Habitats.
*Please plan to participate and bring a beaded or bejeweled-themed S.W.A.P.s to exchange with your fellow Girl Scouts! **Children may not be left unattended. Individual Scouts must be accompanied by an adult; troops should have at least one adult per 10 scouts in attendance. A minimum of 20 registered participants is required to conduct program as scheduled.
