We do some of our best work out in the community. Through public clean-up efforts, nature hikes, and education, we work to connect people with nature.
Want to support conservation efforts at the zoo year-round?
Yearly, we remove more than 2000 pounds of trash from our area parks, green spaces, and waterways with help from volunteers and the City of Rochester, as well as over 500 pounds of water chestnut from our waterways with help from the DEC and PRISM. This is a great way to gather a group of friends and have a fun day outside while also helping the planet.
Every day is a great day to visit the Zoo. Experience life on the wild side, enjoy up-close animal interactions and support global conservation efforts—right here at the Zoo. Reserve your tickets now for quick and easy entry, and enjoy more time connecting with wildlife.
Zoo opens at 9:30 a.m. for our Zoo members.
Open all year long. Closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.
