Ijams offers Creature Feature

This Labor Day weekend, enjoy the Creature Feature at Ijams Nature Center. On Saturday, August 30, 2014, visitors of all ages will have a chance to get nose-to-beak with some of Ijams’ resident furred and feathered (or otherwise) creatures. Animal programs will be held at 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. This program is FREE, but donations to support animal care are welcome. Pre-registration is not required for this event.

Later on in the evening, visitors may enjoy a Bat Night adventure at 8 p.m. First you’ll learn about these flying mammals (and how to hear like one) and then the adventure continues with a search for bats in the park. The fee for this program is $5 for Ijams members and $8 for non-members. Children 5 and under are free. Pre-registration is required; please call (865) 577-4717, ext. 110 to register.
