Provide your youth group with the opportunity to reconnect with the natural world – not the virtual world. And have some memorable encounters with the animal ambassadors at the Louisville Zoo, some of the most amazing creatures on our planet. As your youth laugh and share, discover and learn, they create lasting memories and develop important new understandings of their role in protecting and conserving our planet’s natural resources.
