St. Patrick's Day at the Zoo

March 15, 2020
9:30AM - 4:00PM
Lucky treats, green animals and plenty of fun. Free with admission.

Our animals get lucky!

Green treats
and fun.
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.)

Feeling lucky?
Many animals in the wild aren't so lucky. Poached for their skin or tusks, or their rainforest habitat cut down, many species need our protection. Find out how to help them.
