We are thrilled to host Zoobilation at Seneca Park Zoo, where we offer a truly unique evening outdoors uplifting the success of our education and conservation programs. Explore zoo grounds as you enjoy food and drink tastings from our local partners on the Tasting Trail, learn something new with an animal encounter and enrichment demonstration, and bid on amazing silent and live auction items. Each year dozens of businesses, civic and philanthropic leaders, and community members gather to support and celebrate our city’s only zoo and growing conservation resource.
