What happens with the animals when the snow falls and the temperature drops? March Break at the Zoo aims to deliver an action filled week exploring the entire Zoo including some areas of the Zoo not open to the general public.
Your child will receive a full week of guided activities, learning experiences, and a unique behind-the-scenes tour and/or special animal encounter. March Break at the Zoo will be very similar to a week during Zoo Camp in the summertime, just a little more snowy.
