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.
Enjoy an adventure in the wild outdoors with your infant or toddler as we explore the habitats of the world. We’ll meet outside the front entrance by the gift shop and “stroll” together through a particular part of the Zoo. Our trek will conclude with a touchable animal encounter and a hand or footprint craft to take home. Individuals and parent groups welcome!
Get your tickets for Wild Wheels at the gate the morning of the program.
