TURKEY TOSS

Before you baste your bird or stir your stuffing, come see the festive feast our animals will enjoy at this year’s annual Turkey Toss event. The store-prepared turkeys and other species-specific autumnal fixings are part of the zoo’s excellent animal care program. Enrichment like this encourages natural behaviors that keep animals mentally and physically stimulated and provide extraordinary experiences for zoo visitors.
