Rummaging for Rhinos
May 5 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join us for the the first ever Rummaging for Rhinos! The Zoo’s “Back 40” will transform into a rummage sale where 100% of the proceeds will benefit conservation on behalf of Potawatomi Zoo’s American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK) Chapter. The Zoo will be selling items no longer needed by staff or animals, such as tools, decorations, and furniture, and the staff will be selling personal items, such as clothing and home decor.
Members will get into the Zoo free on May 5th. Non-members will be charged a reduced admission of $6.50 for adults, $5.50 for children and seniors, and children 2 and under are free.
Funds will go to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, the International Rhino Foundation, and Action for Cheetahs in Kenya.
The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy will use our donations help protect both black and white rhinos and most of the other species native to East Africa.
The International Rhino Foundation supports the remaining Javan Rhinos at Ujung Kulon National Park and the Sumatran Rhinos in Bukit Barisan Selatan and Way Kambas National Parks.
Action for Cheetahs in Kenya protect cheetahs, who share much of the same habitat as rhinos and by working to conserve cheetahs we are also saving rhinos and the countless other species that call that habitat home.
The Zoo will not be accepting rummage items from the general public.
