On Saturday, April 16, 2011, the planetarium will transform into a place where wild creatures roam with help from our community partners: Utah’s Hogle Zoo, Salt Lake County Animal Services and Salt Lake County Library Services. While on expedition, kids will be able to visit with animals, decorate their own pith helmet, participate in a fingerprint mural and make craft items to take home. The event runs from 1 – 3 p.m. and all safari activities are free.
But the fun doesn’t stop there.
Your adventure won’t be complete without seeing the wonder captured by Born to be Wild in our ATK IMAX Theatre. Narrated by Academy-Award® winner Morgan Freeman, the show is an inspiring story of love, dedication and the remarkable bond between humans and animals. Born to be Wild documents orphaned orangutans and elephants and the extraordinary people who rescue and raise them – saving endangered species one life at a time. Tickets for the show are $6 and $8 and can be purchased online. Members can see the show for free as part of their Clark Planetarium membership benefits.
