On the first Saturday of each month, Members can access the Zoo 1 hour before opening to the general public. Enjoy cooler weather and see the keepers prepare enrichment and exhibit areas all around the zoo. Then, visit and enjoy a special Meet the Keeper Talk in the designated area at 8:30 a.m. Hear from one of our Zoo’s experts and gain professional insight about these select animals. Learn from the best in the field about what it really takes to care for the diverse animals that call the Zoo home!
This event is always FREE for Zoo Members, and there’s no need to RSVP – just show up and enjoy!
Several times a year the Houston Zoo hosts an exclusive Breakfast With the Animals just for Members. Attendees enjoy a delicious breakfast buffet, see the animals first thing in the morning when they are most active, and hear from zookeepers who care for these animals every day. Breakfast with the Animals features special animal training and enrichment activities for your eyes only! Keep an eye on your inbox – the next breakfast will be announced in the e-mail newsletter. Attendance is limited and tickets sell out fast, so purchase them early!
