“Salamander Saturday” is a national event organized by the Salamander Conservation Foundation. The Amarillo Zoo will be doing keeper chats and a salamander “meet and greet” from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, May 4. The event draws attention to the decline in salamander species throughout North America.

At the Amarillo Zoo summer camp, children 7 years old to 12 years old explore the habits and lifestyles of the zoo’s wild residents. Each week-long camp includes a lot of learning and fun, with crafts, games, animal visitors and tours of the zoo. For more information and a list of detailed camps or to enroll, visit amarillozoo.org or call 381-7911. Pre-registration is required and camps do fill up fast.
