Bongo Feeding 
Meet some of nature's most endangered animals and present them with a snack they will appreciate!

Camel Feeding
Meet our hump-backed residents as they will gladly accept the treats you offer them.

Keeper Talks

Keeper Talk

At regular intervals during the day one of our zookeepers puts on a "keeper talk" near one of the animal exhibits. These chats are a wonderful opportunity to gain some insight into the natural behavior of an animal and hear some interesting details that you may not know about that species. Visitors are encouraged to ask questions and bring a camera to take advantage of the excellent photo opportunities. Keeper talks are free with paid admission. See the "Daily Activities Schedule" for featured animals and keeper talk times, a keeper talk locations will be posted in the gift shop. 

Animal Encounter

Animal Encounter

Meet an animal ambassador up close and make a true connection with a furry, scaly, or feathery friend! Note that all animal encounters are conducted in a protected contact situation, but carefully touching the animal is permitted. Animal encounters are free with paid admission. See the "Daily Activities Schedule" for encounter times.
