Kids' Zoofari: Animal Tales


Each day during Kids' Zoofari, we will celebrate a different animal at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium.  Join us in creating enrichment for our animals and stay to see them receive the fun treats made by YOU!  Additionally, we invite families with younger children to participate in storytime each day to learn more about the amazing animals in our care.

Children receive free carousel rides all week.
