Visit the zoo on the second weekend each month for a little something extra special!
On the second Saturday (11 a.m.-1 p.m.) and Sunday (12-2 p.m.) of each month, docents will staff biofact stations in the zoo. You'll have the chance to touch and explore items like skulls, skeletons, fur, etc., and to see some of the outreach animals close-up. Our knowledgeable docents will answer your animal questions and teach you something new!
