The Watering Hole: Mating, Dating and Copulating 2.0

This popular event from 2017 is back, and we’ve discovered bigger really is better! Join us on July 12 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. for a titillating night exploring animal courtship, breeding behaviors and the lowdown on programs zoos use to ensure genetic diversity and healthy animal populations.

A “down and dirty” scavenger hunt will lead you to stations throughout the Zoo to get an insider’s perspective of the on-site animal care programs and field conservation work. 

General admission tickets are $35. Participants must be 21 or older.
