Join us on Saturday, June 11, 1-4 pm for our second annual Flutterfest! 

As your GPZoo continues to focus on pollinator education and conservation, we wanted to introduce an educational event focused on pollinators, and specifically the butterfly. Join us for this event (cost included in admission) to learn a little more about the conservation program for the Dakota skipper butterfly at your GPZoo, and how YOU can help save pollinators in the wild! 

The first 100 children to enter the gates will get a free Flutterfest button!

Activities include: 

  • Butterfly story time with Joyce Kaatz, author of Raising Little Stripe
  • Seed starter craft station
  • Butterfly face painting 
  • Create Your Own Pollinator Garden Activity 
  • Pollinator Biofacts
  • Butterfly House & Aquarium Monarch education
  • Overview of Dakota Skipper Conservation Project

We hope you join us to learn about pollinators, a vital component to our ecosystem! 

  • 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.
