Live Animal Pathway Encounters

Animal Pathways Encounters Program How prickly is a hedgehog? How slimy is a snake? Add a personal touch to your zoo visit with an up-close encounter. Our staff and docents bring out small animals for guests to see up close! Stop by the Wayne and Gladys Valley Children's Zoo and look for the 'Meet an Animal' station. 11am Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Want to know what we feed our animals, or learn how our keepers take care of over 700 animals? Join an interpreter or keeper for a Feeding Talk! Schedule
