30th Birthday Bash

March 23 & 24, 2024 | 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM

Help us celebrate our 30th! For three decades, we’ve been dedicated to sharing the joy of nature and fostering a deeper connection between wildlife and people. At our Zoo, every visit is a journey of discovery, education, and conservation. Enjoy complimentary celebration cookies (while supplies last), interactions with our animated animals, and special birthday animal enrichment. Quench your thirst with specialty cocktails and indulge your sweet tooth with delectable ice cream offerings available for purchase.

But that’s not all – we want to be a part of your Zoo story! Share your cherished memories with us as you visit the Celebration Garden. Can’t make it to the event? Share your story here! Sign our birthday banners and capture your most cherished moments in front of the camera. Your stories are the heartbeat of our journey, and we can’t wait to celebrate them alongside our 30 years of dedication to wildlife and community.

Meet one of our animal ambassadors at the front entrance at 11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
