SMASH Into Fall Fun!

Smash Bash is back! We’re so excited for the return of this smashing event. Join us on Saturday, October 16 during regular Zoo hours from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to watch the animals receive unique pumpkin enrichment. All of the animals at your Zoo receive enrichment opportunities throughout every day, but pumpkins provide an extra-special opportunity to squash, stomp, chew, and dig into a seasonal treat. Bring your camera to snap the excitement or listen to Keeper Chats and educational presentations throughout the day!

This event is FREE with Zoo admission.

Thank you to Brian and Kelly’s Pumpkins and Trees for donating all of the pumpkins!
