May is usually a month full of field trips and classes at the Zoo. Unfortunately, since live in-person experiences are not possible this year, we have started doing Facebook live videos Sunday through Wednesday at 10:30 am. As well as periodic updates from Zoo and Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Director Jay Tetzloff. The junior zookeeper training that usually occurs at the Zoo with zookeepers and our Zoo Educator Shannon Reedy, have been moved to a series of videos and virtual meetings. While nothing can replace face to face, hands-on training, we have to be creative and make the best of the situation so we are ready to give our guests the best experience possible when we re-open. Hope to see everyone soon!
News from the Zoo
Spring break looks different this year at the zoo with our gates closed until May 1. Please be assured, we miss our guests, but in many ways, it’s business as usual for the staff and most certainly for the animals. Exhibits are being cleaned and animals are being fed, trained and provided with enrichment on regular schedules.
