The Reptile House will close early Tuesday, July 22 for a private event.

Pollinator Palooza

June 22, 2013 - 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Did you know more than three out of four flowering plants and nearly three-quarters of all crops are pollinated by animals? Without pollinators, we would miss many of our favorite foods such as blueberries, almonds, chocolate and coffee!

Learn this and more at Pollinator Palooza. Visit the Zoo for a special ladybug release, music, kid-friendly activities, and themed keeper talks! This event is included in your Zoo admission and is FREE for members.

Pollinator Palooza is sponsored by Fiesta and United Airlines – the official airline of the Houston Zoo.
