Watch Zoo animals receive enrichment as colorful easter eggs!

Animal Egg Hunt

Friday, April 18

Major Sponsor:

On the Friday before Easter Sunday, animals throughout the Zoo discover that the Easter Bunny has visited their exhibits, and they track down treat-filled enrichment eggs hidden in their habitats. In addition, the Animal Egg Hunt features a number of craft areas and story times throughout the day. The Animal Egg Hunt is more than just fun for visitors—it’s also a great form of enrichment for Zoo animals. Through enrichment, we stimulate the animals’ senses and encourage natural behaviors. It’s a key component of their over all well-being.
