Wild Wednesdays | A Trip Around the World, No Passport Required

Share:

No travel plans this summer, no worries!  Visit the Zoo each Wednesday this summer from June 13th through August 8th to experience a new region of the world and learn about the animals that live there.  Be sure to come back each week to get your Zoo passport stamped* by our Zoo Crew as they visit a new location within the Zoo.  Children will learn about the animals from that region, meet our animal keepers, see the animals receive enrichment, and make themed crafts each week.

*Each child who gets their passport stamped for attending all eight Wild Wednesdays will receive one free Zoo admission ticket good through the end of 2018.  Completed passports must be turned in by August 31, 2018 to receive your free Zoo ticket.
