The folks at KIND bar are hosting a kindness safari at zoos in 20 cities, including Austin. They call it a Day of Kindness. Couldn’t we all use that?

You can go on a scavenger hunt and do things like find a bear and then give someone a bear hug or find a zoo keeper and give them a thank-you note. Kids will be given a take-home lunch tote and as well as a flower they can give to someone.

Take advantage of other activities including the primate keeper talk at 11:30 a.m., the tortoise keeper talk at 12:30 p.m., the black bear cub keeper talk at 1:30 p.m. and the alligator keeper talk at 2:30 p.m.
