Easter Weekend

​April 15-16

Jump, bounce, leap and hop to the Zoo on Easter to enjoy a great spring day and a Easter-themed activities all weekend long! Spring is a time of new beginnings, which makes Easter the perfect opportunity to celebrate our youngest animals and Zoo babies, like Sumatran orangutan Mila, white-handed gibbon Kopi, African lion cubs Enzi, Mashaka and Sukari, and our reticulated giraffe calf! Learn more about our youngsters during special keeper chats.

Of course, it wouldn't be Easter without an egg hunt, but here at the Zoo we add a "wild" spin with no basket required. Join in the fun and find the large Zoo-themed eggs hidden throughout the Zoo and White River Gardens. All guests who find at least 10 of the 19 egg signs will receive a special prize. Plus, our brown bears and elephants will participant in Easter themed enrichment activities!

When the family is ready for a snack, stop by Café on the Commons for a festive, tasty Rice Krispie treat! And be sure to bring your camera to snap a nice family photo at our Easter-themed photo opportunity.
