Do you have what it takes to work at the zoo? Join us ever weekend in July to find out what it takes to care for hundreds of animals. Volunteer and education program information will highlight how you too can join the zoo! Grab a scavenger hunt and test your knowledge – can you run the zoo?


Weekend of July 21 & 22

National Zoo Keeper Week is in July so it’s a perfect opportunity to meet some of our keepers and learn about their job! Make thank you cards, stop by an enrichment station, play "move the snake" and participate in a sea lion feeding relay, meet a keeper and trainer, and play keeper bingo!
