Critter Close-Up

Groups also have the opportunity to participate in a special animal encounter, called a Critter Close-Up, presented by a Red River Zoo staff member.

The cost for this fun and informative program is only an additional $1/person (minimum $25 per group with additional presentations on the same day for $20/group).

These 20-minute presentations are offered Monday-Friday at 10:00am, 10:30am, 1:00pm or 1:30pm.

Other times may be available upon request.
