Enrichment Day:  Scratch & Sniff

Saturday, September 26

Learn how we encourage natural behaviors among our animals. It’s not just a toilet paper tube – it’s a game of hide and seek! Join us for keeper talks, enrichment demonstrations and more.

Included with Zoo admission

At the Toledo Zoo we take pride in our excellent animal care, and animal enrichment is a big part of the great care we provide for our animals. Enrichment Day will not only be a treat for our animals, but a fun experience for our visitors as well. Join us for a full day of enrichment encounters throughout the Zoo where you can watch your favorite animals enjoy enrichment in their exhibits.
