Reptile Day with NALZS
Burritt on the Mountain is excited to partner with The North Alabama Zoological Society (NALZS) and the Stucki Family for our Reptile Day this year. NALZS will bring their reptile ambassadors Twickenham, the sulcata tortoise and Moose, the yellow-bellied turtle to teach the differences between turtles and tortoises. And NALZS’s resident herpetologist, Chase Bowman, will teach about our slithery snake reptile friends. The Stucki family is coming to share their beloved reptiles with our visitors. Come meet a bearded dragon and two African Pancake Tortoises. Kids can create a reptile craft to take home and Jeremiah’s Italian Ice will be onsite selling frozen Italian ice and gelato throughout the day. Bring a picnic and enjoy eating lunch on the mountain. You can also explore the park or play one of our four different Goose Chase activities in the park, in the mansion, or on our nature trail. It will be a perfect day of learning and family fun.
Seating for the NALZS presentation is limited and will be on a first come first served basis.
Regular Burritt admission rates apply or free to Burritt members.
