Join us this Saturday, February 9, for a Valentine extravaganza!
On this day, our animals will enjoy a special treat in the form of enrichment prepared by their Zoo keepers. Enrichment is any activity that allows the animals to behave as they would in the wild.
Visit the Wildlife Safari Amphitheatre for programs featuring the sometimes-strange and amazing "birds and the bees" facts as they apply to our affectionate animals. Visitors can also create a valentine for their favorite animal at the Zoo!
The Zoo will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Zoo grounds close at 5 p.m. Regular Zoo admission applies for this event.
