The Oregon Zoo will host the 15th Annual Safe Kids Day on Saturday, May 4, from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Safe Kids Day is a fun and interactive safety event about preventing common childhood injuries – and it is free with zoo admission!
Child safety and injury prevention are very important: accidents are the leading cause of death for kids in the U.S.
Safety stations around the zoo make up a “Safety Safari”; kids can win prizes for completing the safari while learning about topics like pedestrian safety, head injury prevention, and pool safety.
In addition to the safety exhibits, next Saturday the Oregon Zoo is showing off new animals include a baby De Brazza monkey, a baby elephant, baby otters and penguin chicks.
Safe Kids and its regional coalitions keep track of safety resources for kids in Oregon, Washington and all over the country.
D’Amore Law Group is a proud sponsor of Safe Kids Oregon, and of this special day at the Oregon Zoo.
