supporting the NC Piedmont AAZK
SATURDAY JULY 18th 7:00am-11:00
at the Picnic Dome across from the Museum of Life and Science
A few of the keepers here at the museum have joined together with some of the keepers (or techs, as they’re called) at the Duke Lemur Center, to form a local chapter of the American Association of Zookeepers (AAZK).
The AAZK is a non-profit, volunteer organization of professional zookeepers and other persons dedicated to professional animal care and conservation.
The mission of our chapter, the NC Piedmont,
is to promote the continued development of animal caregivers and the welfare of animals through encouraging excellence in husbandry, supporting continuing education and collaboration between professionals, and promoting conservation through fundraising and stewardship.
The Museum is graciously letting our group hold a fundraising yard sale at the Picnic Dome this Saturday! Proceeds from this sale will be used to support chapter goals like animal enrichment, keeper professional development, and wildlife conservation. If you’d like to nab some extremely nicely priced goods, come out and visit us, and support animals and their caretakers!
