The zoo will be closing early at 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 11 to prepare for Brew at the Zoo. We apologize for any inconvenience.
The zoo is home to dozens of honored zoo residents.
We ask that you respect their health and well-being by following a few rules:
Respect Animal Diets – Do Not Feed!
Our animals have carefully formulated diets to meet their specific nutritional needs and we request that you please do not feed them. Because some animals are under strict diets for medical reasons, it is vitally important that this policy is followed. Do not take food or drink into the Contact Corral at the Barnyard – the goats will find them!
Leave Your Pets At Home
Dogs and other pets are not allowed on Zoo grounds, for the safety of the zoo animals as well as your pets. Service dogs may enter the zoo, but we respectfully request they not enter areas where animals are free roaming, such as the Aviary & Barnyard. Please notify the ticket booth if you have a service dog so that zoo keepers can anticipate this event appropriately.
Save Your Coins for a Wishing Well
Do not throw coins or any other objects into animal exhibits. These items can injure or kill zoo animals. If you notice such an object in an exhibit, please notify a staff member.
Teasing Is Rude!
For the welfare of our animals, we ask you not to tease, whistle or yell at the animals at the Zoo, and to refrain from chasing or holding Barnyard animals (including chickens!). No weapons of any kind are allowed in the zoo. If you bring them in you will be asked to leave immediately and the police will be called.
Park Your Bikes Outside
…as well as your tricycles, scooters, skateboards and roller blades. And please, no running. This adds to the safety and enjoyment of all zoo visitors.
Petting the Animals is OK at the Barnyard ONLY
Our other zoo residents are wild animals, and can bite or otherwise injure you. For your safety and theirs, do not attempt to touch or get closer to an animal than the safety barrier allows. Those who break this rule may be asked to leave the zoo.
Photography is Welcome!
You are welcome to photograph or videotape any zoo animals, but you must stay safely behind any barriers and remain in the public areas at all times. If you are a member of the press, or on commercial assignment and need further assistance to photograph or videotape animals at closer range, please contact the zoo at 442-5649 for more information.
