Wildlife Diaries: Hi George! A Journey Through the Mind of a Black-billed Magpie

  • Alaska Zoo 4731 O'Malley Road Anchorage, AK, 99507 United States (map)

Join Alaska Zoo Volunteer Coordinator, Heather Doncaster, as she tells us all about how black-billed magpies behave, learn, grow and interact with the world around them! Our own famous George the magpie will be the focus, while learning about how magpies solve problems, find food, mourn their dead, and find a mate. A special enrichment for George will be planned after the talk too!
