Grandparents & Animal Enrichment Day

Sunday, September 9, 2018

Grandparents visit the Zoo free with a paid child's admission. Plus, tour the animal exhibits to see firsthand how keepers use enrichment to ensure our animal collection stays active and healthy.


Bring Your Grandparents to the Zoo
Grandparents visit the Zoo free today from 9:30am to 5pm with a paid child's admission.

It's also Enrichment Day! What is Animal Enrichment?
In the wild, animals have to work to find food and shelter. Play is another natural and important activity. At the Zoo, life can become a bit more predictable. We utilize enrichment daily to stimulate these natural behaviors, creating an environment that challenges our animals in work and play. 

Check out the schedule below to see firsthand how keeper staff use enrichment as they care for the Zoo's animal collection.
