Gather up your little naturalist and slither out to Binder Park Zoo to help welcome back the snakes, snapping turtles and toads for Binder Park Zoo's annual Reptile Weekend event to be held on August 5th & 6th. One of Michigan’s largest reptile events, Reptile Weekend encompasses a full weekend of fun, entertainment, and hands-on encounters with over 100 different reptiles and amphibians from around the world. This fascinating event is geared toward the entire family and is included in the day’s admission.

Reptiles and amphibians are often portrayed as creepy, dangerous and aggressive creatures but contrary to what most people think, reptiles and amphibians play a vital role in our environment and are often shy and reclusive. Visit Binder Park Zoo for Reptile Weekend and learn about the truths and misconceptions.
