Family Behind the Scenes Tour

Friday, November 29, 2019 — Sunday, December 29, 2019

Journey behind-the-scenes with your family over the Holidays!

Find out what it takes to care for over 250 animals every day, why zoos are important, and learn what YOUR Zoo is doing to protect wild animals and wild places.  The adventure begins in the giraffe barn, continues to the Zoo’s kitchen, includes a behind the scenes visit with the rhino and ends at the giraffe encounter. After the tour, you and your family can choose to remain in the Zoo to explore for as long as you like. Please note this is a one-hour walking tour on dirt roads.
