RED, WHITE & zoo

Saturday & Sunday, June 29 - 30, 2019
10:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.

It’s a Fourth of July picnic as Woodland Park Zoo’s animals— orangutans, lemurs, pigs, gorillas and more—are treated to star-shaped popsicles, watermelons or corn on the cob in celebration of Red, White & Zoo. The special treats are part of the zoo’s excellent animal care program to help enrich the lives of the zoo’s animals. The safe activities help encourage natural animal behavior, keep animals mentally and physically stimulated and engage zoo guests.
