ZooVentures, winter break camps at zoo

FARGO – The Red River Zoo here will host “ZooVentures: Survivor: Fargo!” from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Sunday. The zoo will also offer animal enrichment camps Dec. 26-28 for elementary students on winter break.

During Sunday’s event, visitors will learn which animals snooze, stay or go away in order to survive the winter months. A variety of indoor and outdoor activities are planned.

The enrichment camps will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. each day. Participants will help the zookeepers make toys for various animals, including camels, goats, fox, squirrels, porcupines and wolves, and will then watch as the animals interact with their new toys.

Admission for Sunday’s event is $10 per person for zoo members and $15 for nonmembers. Cost for the camps is $15 per day for members or $20 per day for nonmembers.
