NIGHT HIKE ADVENTURES

Walking through the Zoo at night is a completely different experience. The paths that had been familiar during the day take on a different look and feel. Small creatures can make big noises and others are just more active. We offer children’s night hike, family safaris and overnights for the adventurous!

 


  • Icky, Sticky, Gooey

    October 7

    Did you know giraffes pick their noses with their tongues? Ewwww! Come and get messy with us to explore the grosser side of science by making slime, investigating an owl’s stomach contents, and more!

  • Florida Friend and Foe

    November 11

    Our state is home to thousands of native species—how are they affected by invasive creatures like lionfish and pythons? Find out as we explore the similarities and differences between these groups of animals.

  • Dinosaur Dig!

    December 16

    They’re back! Roar into the life of a paleontologist as we excavate real dinosaur bones and get to see the reptilian giants up close and personal! Discover a world from long ago that we learn more and more about every day!

  • Scaled-Down Science!

    September 2

    If you could shrink to the size of a cell, our world would look like an alien planet! Use microscopes, experiments and crafts to explore the tiny side of science.
