Watch Zoo animals receive enrichment as colorful easter eggs!
Animal Egg Hunt
Friday, April 18
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.
