The Birmingham Zoo’s Junior Board hosted its second annual spring event, Tails in the Trails, on Thursday, May 17.
Beginning at 5:30 p.m., more than 250 attendees were greeted by Vasa the Vasa Parrot, McCoy the Barn Owl, Nerf the Ball Python, Axl the Uromastyx and Pins the African Pygmy Hedgehog along the walkway to Trails of Africa. Guests were then invited to enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Southern Food Management catered the event and featured butler-passed appetizers such as beef curry triangles and bruschetta, pimento cheese spread, meatballs, LA caviar chilled black bean salad and spinach-artichoke dip, and a carving station with roast beef. In addition to the food and cash bar, guests enjoyed live acoustic music performed by Big Town Run. Special appearances by Bulwagi, Callee and Ajani, the Zoo’s African bull elephants, and other residents of Trails of Africa added to the excitement of the evening.
The Birmingham Zoo’s Junior Board strives to increase zoo membership, assist with events and provide promotion of the Zoo. All funds raised from Tails in the Trails will support the Birmingham Zoo’s initiatives.
