Waddle in and get a little closer to our penguins from the 3M Penguins of the African Coast exhibit.

Go behind-the-scenes to see the penguins’ kitchen and “bedroom” while the birds waddle around your feet. You’ll get to meet a penguin zoo keeper, learn all about the care and personalities of these unique birds, get a one-of-a-kind photo (bring your camera), and even get to touch a penguin (based on animals’ choice to participate.)

Time: 10:00-11:15 a.m.
Date: offered on selected Saturdays and Sundays
Age: minimum 8 years old, participants younger than 16 must be accompanied by a paying adult
