New @ The Zoo
Meet The Animals
We're re-doing the macaw enclosures near the front entrance to make them even nicer for the birds and for our guests to see them! Please pardon our mess.
The new naked mole rat exhibit in Natural Encounters is nearing completion!
Something new is coming to our Children's Zoo in place of the prairie dog exhibit. Stay tuned for details.
Saturday, December 1
9:30 – 11:30 a.m.
Ever flip through a wildlife magazine and wish your animal pictures could look that good? Planning to come to Photo Day and want some pointers and practice first? Join us as we learn some basics of wildlife photography and take a mini-safari through the Zoo to capture some of our most photogenic animals. This session is for beginners, and a digital or film SLR camera is recommended. Cameras will not be provided.
