Utah’s Hogle Zoo is pleased to announce that we will be holding our first annual craft fair with Craft Lake City. This craft fair will showcase local crafts, arts, designs and edibles with an emphasis on conservation, recycling, up-cycling and wildlife. This year’s Zoo Craft Fair will focus on fundraising and awareness for the Boreal Toad. This elusive toad is facing declining numbers and the Zoo is putting considerable resources towards helping to save this important Utah species. All funds raised from the craft fair will go towards purchasing toad radio-telemetry backpacks which will help our citizen scientists working in the field to find and catalogue this native Utah species.
Crafters interested in participating in this year's fair can contact Zoo Art Director, Jameson Weston or call (801) 584-1739.
The Craft Fair will be held in the Zoo's Events Pavilion and will be open on both days from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. to all Zoo guests. Curated in part by Craft Lake City.
