ZooMobile a Hit at 10th Annual Family Day at Sylvester Turner Park

On Saturday, April 8, the Houston ZooMobile made a special appearance on behalf of Mayor Sylvester Turner with a few scaled, shelled, and feathered friends at the 10th Annual Family Day at Sylvester Turner Park.

At the annual event, thousands of people of all ages gather for fun and friendship, free food and entertainment. This year, the Houston Zoo’s mobile education team, ZooMobile, introduced some of the more than 15,000 guests to an alligator, pancake tortoise, prairie kingsnake, and a screech owl.

Mayor Turner happily posed with a few of our animal ambassadors, like Catori the screech owl here with mobile education
coordinator, Elizabeth.

Thank you for inviting us to this incredible event, Mayor Turner!
