Have you ever daydreamt about being a zookeeper?  Wondered how much fun it would be to work with zoo animals?  Spend a day with Zoo Staff exploring your dream doing everything from cleaning exhibits and preparing diets to learning the basics of how we care for these exotic creatures.  Be sure to dress for the weather and wear things that you don’t mind getting dirty because you will get dirty!  Ideal apparel would be khakis shorts or pants and comfortable tennis shoes.


Each participant will receive:  Commemorative photo, keepsake, nametag, bottle of water & lunch.

Each participant can expect to clean an animal exhibit, create enrichment, prepare diets, and record data.
