Dallas Zoo coming to River Bend Nature Center

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

The Dallas Zoo is making its way to Wichita Falls to the River Bend Nature Center for some fun and educational events.

Jennica Lambert spoke to Ava Van Valen on Wednesday about what you can expect and the animals that you will see.

On Tuesday Newschannel 6 was able to speak with the Dallas Zoo about their outreach program that helps educate both children and the general public about what they can do to help with conservation efforts.

"Our vision at the Dallas Zoo is to create a better world for animals, and we can only do that by helping younger generations to learn how to help protect these animals. Doing simple things like recycling, turning off the lights, using less water are critically important things that are going to help these amazing animals," said Allyssa Leslie of the Dallas Zoo. 

The event is next Tuesday through Thursday, there will be two animal shows per day at 10:00 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. 

Admission is $5 per person and children 1 and under are free.

So come on out and see different animals from all parts of the world.
