Cincinnati Zoo Tree Carnival
Cincinnati Zoo's Tree Carnival is from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. on September 28, 2013. Learn about trees, plants and wildlife. Don't forget to hug a tree, a mascot tree that will meet and greet children during the event.
The tree carnival is a celebration of trees and everyone will learn fun facts and play games about trees, plants and wildlife. Earn stamps to receive a license to plant a tree and you will get a tree to take home to plant in your Wildlife Oasis.
