Do The Write Thing | March 10, 2017

All across America, students are responding to the problem of youth violence. The Do the Write Thing Challenge gives middle school students an opportunity to examine the impact of youth violence on their lives in discussions and in written form by communicating what they think should be done to change our culture of violence. By encouraging students to make personal commitments to do something about the problem, the program ultimately seeks to empower them to break the cycles of violence in their homes, schools and neighborhoods.

The Force will be strong at Franklin Park Zoo | May 28

There’s no need to travel to a galaxy far, far away to get into the Star Wars spirit – The Force will be strong at Franklin Park Zoo.  When members of the New England Garrison and Alderaan Base dressed as characters from the films roam the zoo! The costumed characters are local members of the 501st Legion and the Rebel Legion; groups of Star Wars fans who, with the use of their movie-quality costumes, contribute to the local community through charity and volunteer work.

Guests are encouraged to wear their own Star Wars attire, take photos with the costumed characters and learn about how animal adaptations and behaviors in our galaxy relate to the creatures from the films through scavenger hunts and other activities. The animals will also join in on the fun as they enjoy treats and special Star Wars themed enrichment items throughout the day.
