Science Safari is a full-day, drop-off program for children ages 6 - 9 led by our Education Specialists. The program will run from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. and will include Zoo tours, up-close animal encounters and fun activities that will engage bodies AND brains! Snacks will be provided but children will need to bring their own sack lunch. The cost is $32 plus tax for Zoo members and $38 plus tax for non-members.
Advanced registration is required, and space is limited.
More dates to come in the future!

Love this zoo! Great place to get a walk in and the animals are everywhere! The museum/indoor part is very educational too. Has a lot of shade for when it's hot out. Very clean. Friendly staff.Taylor F.

Lots of great exhibits and animals to see! Fun gift shop and learning center.Stephanie N.
The museum gives you a break from the sun on hot summer days and has a great selection of animal exhibits from around the world. The zoo keeps growing and adding new animal habitats or improving existing ones. Membership offers reciprocal benefits to other zoos around the country.Bill T.
