PreKritters, a program for children ages 3-5, is being held on the third Friday of every month. We'll have an animal-themed story and craft hour from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Each PreKritters will also include an encounter with one of our educational animals. Cost is $12.60 per child; that price includes tax and admission for the child and one parent (additional tickets may be purchased at the gate). Sign up for upcoming PreKritters programs here.

Keeper Chats are back at the Zoo. The chats will take place at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. Topics and locations will be shared by Zoo staff on the day of the chat. The program is included with your general admission.
