Daily Programs

 

Noon Presentations – each day in the amphitheater

Included with daily admission

 

Every day at noon, our visitors will have a chance to get up close and personal with one of the animals in our care.  Our keepers will bring out the animal of the day and share the animal’s history with you, tell you interesting facts about the animal, where they come from, what they like to eat and how they live in the wild.  This is a great opportunity to learn about the animals in our care.

 

 

 

 

 3:00 Feeding Tours

June through September daily except Wednesdays

October through May, Saturdays and Sundays

Included with daily admission

 

This is another amazing opportunity for our visitors.  Walk with one of our keepers as they feed 5-6 animals.  The keeper will be sure to tell the animals’ history with us at the zoo, what the animal eats and the importance of the regimented diet to the health of the animal.

 

Behavioral Enrichment

Every Sunday throughout the day

Included with daily admission

 

Come be part of the animal’s fascination with the enrichment activity of the day.  Our keepers work diligently to keep the animals in their care engaged and entertained.  Enrichment improves the animal’s lives and keeps them interested and excited.  The enrichment activity differs from species to species but could be boxed gifts, bags of special treats, special scents throughout the enclosure, fur of another animal, a new toy or something new to the enclosure.  No matter what the species, enrichment day is fun for the animal, the keeper and the guests at the zoo.

 

Flash Light Safari – Every Saturday Night in October

Subject to good weather.

Normal admission costs apply.

Take a walk on the wild side, in the safety of the zoo!  Groups of approximately 30-40 people will roam the zoo with a keeper and a docent as your special guide for the night. The keeper will show you how the animals behave at night and will pay special attention to our nocturnal creatures.  This night time tour is a real crowd pleaser.

 

Guests are encouraged to wear sturdy shoes, bring a flashlight and wear a heavy coat, hat and gloves.  It gets really cold at night during the fall months and it is extremely dark on zoo grounds.  For your enjoyment, please come prepared.
