Cool and Creepy Costumes!

  • Saturday, October 18, 3:15-4:45pm

Visit the zoo with your family when the zoo is dark and discover the different "costumes" the animals wear, including some animals that have skeletons on the outside of their bodies! If you’re brave enough, we will go on a night hike through the zoo to listen and look for things that go bump in the night and enjoy hands-on encounters with your favorite creepy animals. Make a creepy craft and eat some tasty snacks as your night-time adventure concludes.

Trees Please!

  • Saturday, November 15, 3:15-4:45pm

What better way to celebrate the oncoming winter season than learning about how trees and the animals that inhabit them work together to prepare for it! Have you ever heard of the Queen of Trees in Africa? How much do you know about our Russian Red Tree Squirrels? Bring your family to the zoo for an afternoon of conservation fun. Make a craft, meet the endangered animals that live at the zoo, and see what the zoo is doing to help their species!
