As you come in, look over the schedule card that is included with your Zoo map for all of the day’s special activities.
Spring is a time of new beginnings, which makes Easter Weekend the perfect opportunity to celebrate the Zoo’s youngest animals, like orangutans, kudus, giraffes and lemurs! Learn more about our youngsters through special signs at exhibits that feature fun facts, written by their Keepers, about some of the Zoo’s youngest residents.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Easter without an egg hunt, but here at the Zoo we add a “wild” spin on the tradition, with no basket required. Join in the fun to find the large Zoo-themed eggs hidden throughout the Zoo and White River Gardens. Simply make note of the locations of at least 10 of the 19 eggs to receive a special prize from the White River Gardens Gift Shop.
The animals will have a chance to get in on the fun too. Several animals will receive Easter-themed enrichment throughout the day like special treats, Easter baskets and egg-shaped decorations with new scents, smells or treats added! Additional animal chats and programming will also be added to the weekend for special opportunities to learn about some of the Zoo’s younger animals!
Enjoy more fun with a special Easter-themed photo opportunity, a craft activity and festive treats from Café on the Commons. Don’t forget to visit the Family Nature Center and Butterfly Kaleidoscope presented by Citizens Energy Group in the White River Gardens.
Easter Weekend is sure to be a fun spring day at the Zoo for the whole family! Activities are free for Zoo members and included with regular Zoo admission.
