There’s so much for kids to do at their Zoo!

Kids can stop at the new Sensory Garden to learn how animals’ senses match up with their own. The area features animal-shaped drums that encourage young people to explore sounds, signage with fun facts about how animals use their senses and a variety of flowers that stimulate young eyes and noses!

Kids can stop at the Stage for Close Encounters of the Bird Kind, our 2011 Stage Show that features a variety of birds from around the world. They can check out the Summer Program schedule for daily animal feedings, enrichment demos keeper talks and more. What an exciting way to have fun while learning!

Kids can learn from teens, too — our enthusiastic ZooTeen volunteers.  ZooTeens are responsible for stations throughout the Zoo which promote environmental awareness and education on a variety of topics.  So stop by and learn about everything from bugs and bees to recycling to conservation … or have your face painted!

There’s just so much to do!
