ARE YOU CRAVING SOME ANIMAL TIME BEFORE THE ZOO OPENS TO THE PUBLIC?
Join us to Rise and Dine with the Animals, where you can enjoy a catered breakfast* by Proof of the Pudding while also enjoying an early morning view of the animals as they get ready to start their day.
Each program will include an educational component to learn more about the species, time with an Animal Care Professional to hear about the individuals in their care, a memorable takeaway connected to the featured animal, and Zoo admission to stay and enjoy the Zoo at the end of the program.
*Breakfast options will be a biscuit (choice of sausage, egg and cheese, or vegan sausage), fruit, and other light breakfast sides, coffee, and juice. Option to add a mimosa for 21+ guests when you register.

June 10: Gorillas
Bring your troop to join our gorilla troop for an interactive breakfast of fun facts, activities, and opportunities to learn more about how we care for this iconic species. From the Education Team, you’ll learn how similar gorillas are to us with information about the species, their conservation status, and our work to help save gorillas in the wild. You’ll see their habitat being prepared for the day, and the moment that they start off their morning by running out and investigating what the Animal Care Team has for them to find! The Animal Care Team will also share stories and information about the individuals in the troop. We hope you will not only fill your bellies, but also your brains and hearts when you start your day with us exploring gorillas.
