Question from Heather:
How much will the bags cost? Also, I am a volunteer at the zoo. Is there any way to buy the bags early?!
The bags range from tote bag size for $28 to large hampers and beach bags for $60. We do have to charge sales tax as well. There are also portfolios and notepads available for $12-$18 depending on size. The gates open at 9 am on Saturday, March 7th and we can't let the public in before that, so just show up early! We do have limited quantities, but I doubt we will run out first thing in the morning.
Update 3/5/09: There have been quite a few questions about who makes these bags for the Zoo. The answer is Jenny Hurth in Berkeley, CA. www.jennyhurth.com Thanks Jenny, your bags are a hit!
