Behind the Scenes

Go behind the scenes and see the Zoo from a whole new side!

Need some new ideas for date night? Maybe a fun group outing with coworkers? We have you covered!
Sneak A Peek and Close Encounters are two hands-on ways to experience the Zoo. Touch a sea star, step inside a habitat, feed a bear, and more!
