Black Cherry Skip Day Launch Party: Rhinopalooza

Rhino Post Top Of Can

Your Great Plains Zoo has once again partnered with Fernson and Hy-Vee to bring a new flavor to conservation! This year, we offer one of Fernson's famous Skip Day hard seltzers in the flavor of Black Cherry to help our conservation efforts with the Black Rhino. A portion of the sales of Black Cherry Skip Day will go directly toward GPZ's Black Rhino conservation efforts. 

To help us launch this effort, we will be having a party! Join us Wednesday, June 16 from 5:30-7:30 at the Rare Rhinos of Africa exhibit space to party with the Black Rhinos! 

Cost: $15/ticket

  • 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.

  • 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.
