St. Patrick's Day at the Zoo
March 17, 2019
9:30AM - 4:00PM
Lucky treats, green animals and plenty of fun. Free with admission.
Our animals get lucky!
See amazing animals, talk to the keepers who care for them, and watch animals enjoy "lucky" treats and enrichments for St. Patrick's Day! (Why enrichments? They encourage natural behavior that keeps animals healthy.)
Green animals too.
How many can you find?
Don't forget to look out for all the green-colored animals in our zoo! (Hint: You'll find most of them in Kids' Zone: frogs, tortoises, snakes, leaf insects...and some in the aquariums too.)Explore Kids' Zone
