Memorial Day weekend celebration festivities

We invite you to make a splash this summer at your Zoo. Your visit would not be complete without a stop at our all new Aquarium. Once inside, you can travel around the world via water, get your hands wet in the Touch Tanks and learn about the beauty and wonder found in the world beneath the waves.

After you’ve gone deep into the blue, step across the pathway and look to the tree tops to see our newest residents in Primate Forest. Enjoy the antics of the increasingly independent Ting, our female baby white-cheeked gibbon and see how Olivia and Silvio, our mongoose lemurs are settling in to their new home.

Along with all of the new residents, throughout the weekend there will be fun activities for visitors of all ages, including animal feedings and enrichment demonstrations, daily bird show in the Indoor Theatre, Movin’ Groovin’ Backyard Safari Super Show sponsored by Mercy, crafts, face painting and much more. All of these activities are included with your Zoo admission.
