The Red River Zoo is temporarily closed to the public

as we monitor the progression of COVID-19 in our region.

The health and safety of our staff, animals, and visitors is our highest priority.

The temporary closure will be in effect until further notice.

The Zoo provides a place for families to gather and appreciate the natural world.  In that spirit, we will endeavor to broadcast two Facebook Live videos each day from the Zoo for you and your family to enjoy.  We hope you’ll join us.

We will be back.

We hope that all of you stay safe and take care of each other.  See you soon.
