Labor Day Awareness Weekend

September 1, 2023 @ 10:00 am - September 4, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

As summer winds down and the school year gets ready to start back up, we hope you can make time to come out for some of our last summer programming opportunities here at the Zoo. This year in honor of Labor Day Weekend, we are celebrating all the labor that goes into keeping the Zoo running! 

In addition to our normal Summer Programming animal schedule, this weekend will also feature tabling with various activities & learning opportunities including enrichment making stations, equipment & tools used around the Zoo, a mini ‘Zoo Olympics’ activity, tours in our commissary and elephant barn, and a look back at all the conservation organizations our community helped us raise money for this past season – and the opportunity to chip in to your favorite causes! 

Onsite we will be accepting donations to any of the previous conservation organizations we have fundraised for throughout the summer, while online we will be raising money specifically for our own animal enrichment fund to support the enrichment of the animals in our care! For every $5 donated you will be automatically entered to win an elephant-made painting OR a behind-the-scenes tour of our river otter habitat!
