Binder Park Zoo is one our local gems, working diligently to spread the word of conservation with all who walk through the front gate. Whether they are connecting people with the Adopt a Beach program, or educating children about the importance of preserving the bee and butterfly population, they remind us all that we share a planet with some incredible creatures, and we should do our part to help them. Corks for Conservation is coming up on July 13th. This 21+ event will feature live music, hors d'oeuvres, live animal presentations, and, as the name suggests, Michigan beer and wine tastings. All the proceeds go to conserve endangered wildlife, so you're saving our friends while sipping with friends. Tickets start at $40 for a single admission, or $75 per couple, with VIP and designated driver entries available. Click here to reserve your tickets today!
