<a href="http://napleszoo.org">The Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens</a> will celebrate World Giraffe Day on June 22 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The festivities include five giraffe exploration stations and a themed scavenger hunt with a chance to win a family membership to the zoo. Visitors can also purchase a Save the Giraffes wristband, with all proceeds benefiting giraffe conservation. Adults can continue the fun at South Street City Oven and Grill for a night of Longnecks for Longnecks, wherein South Street will donate $2 to the Naples Zoo and its giraffe conservation efforts for every longneck beer sold.

A sweet and tart effervescent drink called kombucha, a fermented tea beverage, has grown in popularity among the health conscious. Packed with probiotics and phytonutrients, kombucha can help balance bacteria in the gut, which in turn has been linked to improved digestion, immune function, and even mood. In Naples, you can try seasonal flavors of kombucha on tap at Juicelation and The Bowl, which also offer pre-packaged bottles in flavors that include apple spice, ginger lemon, and hibiscus rose. Interested in making your own kombucha at home? Visit Circle C Farm in Bonita Springs, which sells the base brew and offers introductory classes on the basics of making kombucha.
