An all day experience!!

Participants are welcome to stay in the zoo all day and do some self-exploring after the programs are complete. Both programs usually take the full 2 hours with time built in for lunch. The Guided Tour generally takes an hour which only covers a portion of what the zoo has to offer. If time allows in your personal schedule please plan on staying to explore on your own. I promise you can explore until park closes and still find new animals to observe.
