Pokémon GO is an interactive game that allows you to go around your neighborhood, catching different types of Pokémon on your phone. Compete with your friends to "Catch Em' All", or see what new species you can find around your town. No matter what, it's a great way to get outside and enjoy Pokémon for yourself.

For those who already play the game, you may not know yet that the zoo hosts multiple in-game Pokémon Gyms and PokéStops. During the event, the zoo will be activating "lures", allowing visitors to catch even more cool creatures between 11am and 2pm.

The event will be on July 17th from 10am to 3pm at the Utica Zoo. A Pokémon themed scavenger hunt will be held throughout the zoo during the day. Each visitor will get their own collectible "Utica Zoo Animal Conservation Card".

There will also be a booth set up for The Association of Zoos and Aquarium's Songbird SAFE program. This will tie in perfectly since the featured Pokémon of the Community Day is Starly.
