Did you know that porcupines can't actually shoot their quills? Or that owls can't really turn their heads 360 degrees? This program will clear up many common animal misconceptions as well as explore which animals are a part of mythology and legends across different cultures. Using literature, art, science, and storytelling, we will look at myths and realities in the animal world.

Program highlights: Learning about the zoo's 150+ different species, creating enrichment for tropical birds with help from the zoo's bird trainers/keepers, creating enrichment with the keepers for the zoo's primates, giraffe encounter, rhino encounter, watching keepers feed the hyenas and alligator, games, crafts, tie-dying a t-shirt to bring home, and more!

Summer Wild Adventure Program FAQs

Where and when do I drop my child off?

On the first day of the program, please arrive by 8:45am. The drop off area is located at the top of the zoo's smaller parking lot (across the street from the larger field parking lot). There will be a picnic table.

Where do I pick up my child?

Children will be picked up at 4:00pm (or noon for the half day programs) at the top of the zoo's smaller parking lot (across the street from the larger field parking lot). There will be a picnic table and sign.

What should my child wear?

Make sure your child is dressed for the weather. We spend most of the day outdoors and do a large amount of walking, so we recommend that children wear comfortable shoes and do not wear sandals or open toed shoes.

What should my child bring?

Kids should bring: Water bottle, lunch, sunscreen, insect repellent, hat/visor, & a backpack. Depending on the weather each day, you may want to pack additional clothing such as a sweatshirt, additional pair of socks, etc.
