See something strange in an exhibit? A paper bag, a cardboard box, or even toys are all there for a reason - animal enrichment! Our zookeepers use recycled goods to hide food and engage the natural behaviors of our animals. Click here to learn more. Enrichment occurs on Sundays at 1:30 p.m. and Wednesdays at 10:45 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
Docent talks are at 11 a.m. Saturdays in the amphitheater.
Join docents and volunteers as they read animal stories, show some of the live education animals and do crafts with kids. Reading with the Animals takes place at the zoo amphitheater on Tuesdays from 10:00 a.m. until noon.
Each Friday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. a different animal will be featured and guests will learn how to draw that animal in front of their exhibit.
Learn about backyard wildlife and how you can experience nature in your own backyard every day. Backyard activities take place at the Backyard Gardens on Fridays from 10:00 a.m. until noon.
