Spring Fling

Spring Break at Woodland Park Zoo is in full swing April 12 - 14 and 19-21

Enjoy keeper talks, Zoomazium programs and an opportunity to feed the elephants, penguins and Australian birds (additional cost for feedings). Our animal experts will be on hand to answer your questions and provide insight into the zoo’s excellent animal care program.

Plus, take your own spring conservation action by picking up a free evergreen tree seedling to plant, with a purchase of $30 or more at either ZooStore, while supplies last (limit one per household).

… And while you are there, enter for a chance to win a cuddly lion plush. One lucky winner will be selected each day during Spring Fling. 

And, get a free eco-friendly reusable lunch bag and special treat with the purchase of a Spring Fling Kid's Meal at the Rain Forest Food Pavilion, while supplies last  (limit one per person). Spring Fling Kid's Meals include a peanut butter and jelly sandwich OR a turkey roll, carrots OR Mandarin oranges, and a kid's apple juice.
