Genesee Trail Day: October 5
From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Zoo’s
docents will be sharing the history of the Genesee River, the Iroquois people and
Seneca Park with
visitors. Through the use of several stations they will highlight different
animals that play a key role for the Iroquois:
Kids will learn how raccoons find their food as they
use their sense of touch to locate a human treat among the fake bugs,
snakes and fish. Fun!
Seneca Clan Animals - Deer, Wolf, Bear:
Various skulls and claws will be available to help you learn about these mammals.
Seneca Clan Animals - Beaver and Friends:
Learn about the Zoo's conservation stories involving otters, sturgeons and bog turtles!
Eagles, our local story:
Eagles have been an important part of
Seneca tradition - the Seneca headdress has one eagle feather. You'll
also learn about the return of eagles to Irondequoit Bay.
Seneca Clan Animals - Heron, Hawk, Snipe:
Learn all about birds by checking out skulls, feathers, wings and feet!
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
