Mill Mountain Zoo, city library come together for International Red Panda Day



ROANOKE, Va. Kids can leave the Mountain Zoo with a brand new book this Saturday for a fun family event.

Saturday is International Red Panda Day and with the help of Roanoke City Public Libraries, the zoo festival will also include children literacy.

Red pandas are endangered for several reasons and International Day is to raise awareness of the status of wildlife.

Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Zoo Mountain Mountain is introducing children to their red panda, Nova, as well as educating them about other endangered animals.

During the day, families can explore the zoo, make crafts, make worksheets, enjoy puppet shows and chat with the zoo.

Bambi Godkin, education manager at Mill Mountain Zoo told 10 News that the event is meant to be a fun learning experience.

We hope to plant a compassion and empathy for the wildlife and nature they will take in their adulthood and perhaps they will become passionate about conservation, perhaps it is an area they cross when they grow old.

When you dress like an animal or a character in a storybook, you get a dollar of admission.

Each child should pick up a book from the library to take home.

The books feature animals they can find at the Mill Mountain Zoo.

While a zoo and library may seem like a difficult pair, this event proves different.

Our goals really match. We’ve really been about trying to engage and enrich families in the Roanoke Valley and trying to make sure they find education fun and fun learning and they want to go explore and they want to read a book and see the animal in the book, said Amber Lowereri, youth services manager at Roanoke City Public Libraries.
