Lemurpalooza at the Duke Lemur Center @ Duke Lemur Center
Jun 2 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Are you ready for some summer fun?! Playful prosimians. Fun, educational activities. Food trucks. Even a visit from the DLC’s very own mascot, Maky! Join us on Friday, June 2 from 5:00-8:00 p.m. for a festive evening celebrating and supporting the amazing animals of the Duke Lemur Center. This awesome event costs only one $50 Adopt-a-Lemur donation per car, but reservations must be made in advance (see below for details). Enjoy your evening of lemurs with the knowledge that your donation supports our animals as well as our education, research, and conservation programs.

Come meet the unique primates of Madagascar! This will be a special evening experience that allows families to stroll and view the animals at their own pace, rather than our usual guided tours. Keepers, educators, researchers, and more will be on hand to talk about the adoptable lemurs and to answer your questions. Engaging educational activities will be provided for kids and kids at heart. Guests can enjoy dinner and dessert from fabulous local food trucks, or pack a picnic to enjoy. Community fun, adorable lemurs, and an opportunity to conserve the environment and endangered animals all add up to a perfect summer evening.

Call 919-401-7252 or visit http://lemur.duke.edu/lemurpalooza/ for reservations
