Sunrise Surprise Stroll

What will you see this month? Walk the grounds with experienced Zoo educators as they share the latest updates on our animal collection and the “inside secrets” of what’s going on, all before the Zoo opens for the day. Each month is different, and you won’t know what you’ll see and learn until you get here! This is a 90-minute walking tour to areas in natural hills and valleys, and includes breakfast muffins and coffee.

Reservations are required prior to the stroll. Limited space is available.  Printed tickets must be presented at check-in. Check-in at the Dickinson Family Center for Lifelong Learning (formerly the Otto Center).
