The Houston Zoo is open one hour early at 8:00 a.m. on the first Saturday of each month for Members only! Enjoy cooler weather and see animals just as they come outside for the day, a time of day when they are most active.
Member Mornings include a special Meet the Keeper Talk that begins at 8:30 a.m. – hear from one of our Zoo’s experts and gain professional insight about a select animal or area. Learn from the best in the field about what it really takes to care for the diverse animals that call the Zoo home!
December 7, 2013 –
This beginner level class is open to children ages 4-10 and their parents. Please bring a bottle of water and wear modest, comfortable clothing. Adults and children must purchase separate tickets.
