Celebrate the world of crocodilians. A portion of the proceeds from this WDC fundraiser helps support crocodile conservation projects worldwide. Knowledgeable members of the Chicago Herpetological Society give short talks about crocodiles and their kin, including some residents. Jim Nesci and his world-famous American alligator, ‘Bubba,’ pay a visit from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Come see the skull of a 24-foot saltwater crocodile. There’ll be face painting, storytelling and other activities for children – craft vendors and other fun for the whole family! Wildlife Discovery Center is at ELAWA Farm.
