Zoolympics II
Week-long, Half-day
$130 for members, $140 for non-members


Can you long jump further than a frog? Sprint faster than a zebra? Or lift more than a chimpanzee? We’ll compete as a team in an exciting animal-themed version of the Olympics.
Zoo Scene Investigation
Week-long, Half-day
$130 for members, $140 for non-members


Investigate a series of wildlife scenes to find out what happened and who did it! We’ll use a variety of clues and tools to get to the bottom of the story.
Twilight Trails

Follow the Zoo trails as dusk settles in. Visiting animals in the cooler twilight hours shows activity missed during the day. The visit is complete with making s’mores and a special craft activity.
