Five years ago this August, the Naturally Wild Swap Shop made its debut in the McGovern Children’s Zoo. Over that 5 year time span, the shop has grown by leaps and bounds. We now have over 4,000 traders and continue to grow.
To celebrate this anniversary and to thank all the traders who have made the shop such a success, we will be hosting Trader Appreciation Day on Saturday, August 16, 2014 from 9AM to 3PM.
We will have lots of special things going on! Anyone trading during the event will receive 100 extra points. In addition, we will have door prize drawings each half hour for those who trade that day.
Door prizes will include items from our fossil, mineral, insect, bone and shell collections. There will also be some special guests here. We will have the Texas Parks and Wildlife Bat Team, the Marine Mammal Stranding Network, the Houston Zoo Horticulture Team and more. You can be on the lookout for animal ambassadors and keeper chats in the Shop too.
Come on out and join the fun!
