Have you ever wanted to spend the night at the Zoo? You can! And you’ll learn something new, too.
Designed especially for school and youth groups, each night is themed and includes a behind-the-scenes tour, viewing some of the Zoo’s habitats and animal residents at night and hands-on exploration of how the Zoo helps to save species from extinction.
Nocturnal Adventures programs are available for school groups each fall & spring and for scout & youth groups during the summer.
From where they live to what they eat, animals have special adaptations for their surroundings that help them survive. Explore our Deserts building in the evening and discover animal adaptations for day and night! Recommended for children in grades 2-5.
Get connected and learn how and why species become endangered and how we all can help them survive and thrive. See how the orangutans and other Zoo animals spend their evenings and learn how you can help protect wildlife. Recommended for children in grades 2-5.
What animals live where and why? How does a habitat change at night? Explore our Oceans building after hours and learn how the Zoo creates habitats to provide for the wellbeing of the animals in our care. Recommended for children in grades 2-5.
Each program includes all evening activities, evening snack, indoor sleeping accommodations, breakfast buffet, parking and admission to the Zoo for the day following your overnight.
