Families United for Nature (FUN)

Become a wildlife hero by making sustainable choices in your everyday life! Spend the third Saturday of each month with us learning how you can help animals and the environment through simple choices and actions. Each program includes a hands-on workshop to create sustainable items that you can take home, make a connection to the animals at Zoo Atlanta, and engage with other like-minded families. Zoo Atlanta will equip you with the tools and knowledge you need to live a greener, more animal-friendly life!
