TXU Energy Presents Pollinator Palooza

June 21, 2014 - 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Did you know more than three out of four flowering plants and nearly three-quarters of all crops are pollinated by animals? Without pollinators, we would miss many of our favorite foods such as blueberries, almonds, chocolate and coffee!

Learn this and more at TXU Energy Presents Pollinator Palooza. Visit the Zoo on Saturday and Sunday, June 21 & 22 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for special ladybug releases, music, kid-friendly activities, and themed keeper talks!
