September 25th – Marvels of Madagascar (2:00-3:30)

Ever since Madagascar split off on its own millions of years ago, the animals and plants were left to fend for themselves. Come learn about all the amazing endemic species that Madagascar has to offer, meet some ambassador animals, and have a special experience with one of our zookeepers!


October 23rd – Nightmare on Zoo Street (2:00-3:30) Ages 13+

Celebrate the spooky season by spending time with the animals from all of your favorite scary movies and one of our zookeepers. We will meet the animals of our nightmares and see that they aren’t as scary as they seem. If you are both an animal lover and a scary movie buff, this is the workshop for you!


November 20th – Thanksgiving for the Animals (10:00-11:30)

Who doesn’t love a great feast for Thanksgiving? Our animals sure do! Join us as we explore the delicious delights we provide for our animals year round. We will explore the ways our zookeepers make diets, and even make a tasty treat for one of our zoo animals.
