Back for the eighth year on May 2, Bridgeland’s annual Nature Fest is set to roar into town with a wild combination of exotic creatures, lively activities and tantalizing food trucks. Event attendees will also have the opportunity to see and interact with a rare and respected figure in the wildlife kingdom – Jack Hanna, a long-time animal advocate that has been featured on shows like Good Morning America, The Late Show with David Letterman and other well-known, nationally-syndicated programs. 

Nature Fest will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 2, at Bridgeland’s Oak Meadow Park, 17730 House Hahl Road. Besides attending one of Hanna’s three performances, wild things of all ages are sure enjoy an on-site exotic petting zoo with unique animals like zebras, kangaroos and wallabies, armadillo races, educational reptile and bird shows, as well as many other family-friendly activities.
