Meet The Animals
Meet the Keeper Talks are an opportunity to see zoo animals in action with their keepers. Talks include everything from red panda training to fruit bat feedings. Our YouTube channel includes many videos of Meet The Keeper talks, to give you an idea of what you might see.
Check the Meet the Keeper Talks schedule to find out what animals have special feedings, showings, or enrichment activities today.

The Naturally Wild Swap Shop is located just inside the McGovern Children’s Zoo! The shop is set up for kids 18 and under to bring in things they find in nature. We give them points for what they bring in and they can spend their points on some of the things in the shop. It is a wonderful thing to watch the kids. You can actually see the wheels start to turn as they realize what they could get for their points. AND, we give extra points for knowledge!
