AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — The Amarillo Zoo showed us a Colorado River Toad by the name of Thorton this week.
And you can get to know him and many other animal ambassadors at the Easter Eggcitement event this month. On Saturday, April 16, the Amarillo Zoo will be hosting an event full of games, animal enrichment, and encounters. Tickets are $6 and can be purchased at the Amarillo Zoo website. Children ages 2 and under get in for free. They are also accepting volunteers for the event. You can find out more on how to help out, here.
And come out and help make Thompson Park a little cleaner with the Amarillo Parks and Recreation department. The event is on April 23rd, from 9 am to 12 pm. You can sign up to help by contacting the Amarillo Zoo Education Department at (806) 670-0792.
