New @ The Zoo
Meet The Animals

The Houston Zoo will close early on Thanksgiving Day at 3:00 p.m. Last entry at 2:00 p.m.
This Member Morning features the Aquarium, which will showcase its green sea turtle. Members will enjoy a special visit from Dr. Joe Flanagan as he answers questions and discusses his extensive experience working with sea turtles. After this Member Morning, enjoy other Save a Turtle Saturday activities throughout the Zoo.
At Member Mornings, the Zoo will open one hour early at 8:00 a.m. on the first Saturday of each month, just for Members only. See animals as they come outside for the day, a time of day when they are most active. You’ll also get a special Meet the Keeper Talk at 8:30 a.m. This event is always FREE for Zoo Members, and there’s no need to RSVP – just show up and enjoy!
