Features wintry fun for the whole family, including dog-sledding demonstrations from members and their four-legged friends of the Green Valley Dog Drivers. Members of the organization will engage guests in games and musher talks with their canine teams. Guests can also learn about some of the animals that don’t seem to mind the colder temperatures during special zoo chats. At Hamill Family Play Zoo, youngsters and their families can meet Nature Cat, a costumed character from WTTW’s new animated series that encourages children ages 3-8 to explore and develop connections with the natural world. Representatives from WTTW will be on hand at the event to engage kids in a variety of hands-on activities, including making bird feeders and playing tracking games. Other fun activities will feature mud play and creating Valentine’s Day cards for the animals.
