April 16 - April 17
10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Celebrate your home planet with the animals that share it! March in an animal parade, learn how to shrink your carbon pawprint, and watch Zoo animals receive special enrichment treats and toys.
Plus, discover actions you can take at the Zoo, at home, and in your neighborhood to show love to your planet and build green communities.
Come in an animal costume to receive $2 off general admission. (Adults, please leave face masks at home.) You can also create your own mask or tail at the Zoo. Once you are dressed like an animal, join us for the Celebration of Species Parade at 2 pm!
Animal enrichments improve an animal's quality of life by creating a more stimulating environment and encouraging species-typical behaviors, which is good for their physical and mental health.
