Zoobilee

Zoobilee is a Zoo-wide annual bash to celebrate and thank our membership. It is typically held on two evenings in the late spring, when we close the zoo early for non-members. In addition to having the zoo open just for members, there’s tons of fun to be had, including activities and special treats.

Save the date for Zoobilee 2017: April 6th and 7th!
