Please join Alamogordo Friends of the Zoo (AFOTZ) on Saturday, February 12th, 2022 from 12 pm – 2pm for a special welcome party for our new zoo animals. If you haven’t had a chance to come out and see them yet, today would be the perfect opportunity.

We will be welcoming Gabe, our new camel, a red kangaroo and two male sibling marmosets. Our red kangaroo and marmosets are yet to be named, so come out on the 12th for a chance to enter your favorite name!

We will also be doing a drawing for a free AFOTZ Membership. Just purchase an item, or items, from the Alameda Park Zoo Amazon Wish List and bring in your receipt to the New Animal Welcome Party for your chance to be entered into the drawing.

AFOTZ Members have a special early access and a “Behind the Scenes Tour” the day of the event. If you would like more information on becoming an AFOTZ Member, please visit our website for more information!

We hope that you can join us for this special event!
