Did You Know?
Magellanic penguins are named after Ferdinand Magellan who first discovered them in 1519.
From Memorial Day in May through Labor Day in September (weather permitting), visitors can enjoy daily keeper talks, weekly animal enrichment and more!
Keeper talks are a unique opportunity to hear interesting stories and ask questions about your favorite animals from the people who work closest to them – the zookeepers!
2016 Schedule Coming Soon!
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.
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.
