Calling all kids!
Every weekend special interactive activities and experiences help kids connect with wildlife and nature. A variety of animals will receive special enrichment items giving kids an opportunity to marvel at their intelligence, strength, and beauty-and discover one of the ways we help our animals thrive. A pile of pine shavings to roll in, container puzzles with food hidden inside, and treat "treasure hunts" are just some of the ways our animal keepers provide enrichment for our zoo animals. Guests may be surprised by what elephants have big fun with, and what a jaguar thinks is the cat's meow!
Dr. Zoolittle and his puppet friends will entertain everyone with fun and facts about Australian animals, and our energetic and enthusiastic Zoo Corps teens will have a cool discovery station stocked with props, biofacts, and cool things to do.
New this year: Join us for HalGLOWeen on October 27, 28, and 29. Stay until 8 p.m. and have fun with an amazing bubble light show, glowing "Boolahoops," exciting entertainment, special treats, Halloween-type music, and more!
