BREC's Baton Rouge Zoo invites you to visit this summer for Twilight Tours every Tuesday and Thursday evening in June and July from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Take a guided twilight tram ride through the Zoo in the cool of the evening. Highlights include the Otter Cabin, L'Aquarium de Louisiane, giraffes, zebras and flamingos. Participants will also enjoy a private Wildlife Safari Amphitheatre show and a light evening snack.
"Twilight Tours provide visitors with the unique opportunity to experience the sights and sounds of the Zoo at a time when people are not normally around. The atmosphere of the Zoo in the evenings is much different than it is when it is crowded during the day," said Mary Woods, marketing/development director. "It's a more personal experience."
The cost is $16 for adults and teens, $13 for children 2-12. There is limited space available, and pre-registration is required. Visit www.brzoo.org/twilighttours to register.
