On the first Saturday of each month (except November), Members can enter the Zoo one hour before opening to the general public. Enjoy cooler weather and see the keepers prepare enrichment and animal areas all around the zoo.
Each month, a different Meet the Keeper Talk (Presented by Phillips 66) is featured at 8:30 a.m. exclusively for Zoo members. Hear from one of our Zoo’s experts and gain professional insight about the featured 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!
