Junior Wild Walk: A Junior Zookeeper Experience

June 1 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

$15.00 – $25.00
Olive the River Otter

Embark on a wild adventure! Kids will meet an animal ambassador, take a peek behind-the-scenes, and step into the shoes of our animal keepers by helping to prepare and deliver enrichment for our animals during this immersive experience.

This program is for children ages 5-12. An adult is required to attend with the children in a group.  Tickets include admission for the day and a 10% discount coupon for the Gift Shop valid only for the day of the event. 

Due to the narrow locations of some behind-the-scenes areas, strollers are not permitted in these areas.

*Cancellation policy: Cancellations must be made 1 week prior to the event for a full refund.  If the event is cancelled due to weather concerns, full refunds will be issued to all participants.
