Behind the Scenes
Have you always wanted to be a zookeeper? Now’s your chance! You’ll put on some work boots and work side by side with a zookeeper to learn what it takes to care for the animals at the zoo.
Join us for a sneak peek behind-the-scenes of select areas to see where the animals spend their time while not on exhibit and learn how much goes into caring for the animals at the zoo.
Want to get even closer to the animals? Go in an exhibit, observe a private training session, or get up close with a penguin. These are just a few options of the close encounter program.
