KEEPER CHATS

This is your chance to get up close and personal. Meet the keepers, ask questions and learn all about what makes our animals so amazing! All chats subject to change; please consult with a Zoo staff member on the day of your visit for the most current schedule.

Please note: All keeper chats will be cancelled in heavy rain. Stingray feeding and demonstrations in the Lands of Change Theater will be cancelled if thunder is heard less than 30 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.
