New @ The Zoo
Meet The Animals
A few of our buildings are closing at 4:00 or 4:30 for private holiday parties on various days; check the Zoo Lights page for the dates and times.
On December 24, the Zoo will close early at 3:00 p.m. (last entry at 2:00 p.m.) We will not be open on December 25.
Gorillas are coming back to the Zoo in 2015. Please pardon our mess in the African Forest as we prepare for their arrival.
There's construction on the East Hoofed Run as we build new habitats for the maned wolf, tapir and other animals there.
On September 4th & 5th, show off your lemur leaping skills by visiting Sky Zone Sports indoor trampoline park for “Leaping for Lemurs.” They will donate 25% of the proceeds on these two days to lemur conservation in Madagascar.
We will also having a “Dodging Extinction” dodgeball tournament from 7 PM – 8 PM on Thursday, September 5th at the Sky Zone Sports with prizes for the winning team. The spots are limited for this tournament, so get your teams of 6 players signed up now!
We look forward to seeing you come out and leap into action to help save these amazing animals!
