Spring is almost here! It’s time to escape hibernation and head to The Maryland Zoo for our first big event of the new Zoo season. Join us Saturday, March 14th from 10am – 4pm for Zoo Bloom. We’ll be welcoming spring (and warmer weather) with special activities and treats for you and our animals.
As part of this special event the Zoo will be featuring a full schedule of animal enrichment, where our animals will receive spring-themed treats. We’ll even have free treats on hand for you from our friends at Charm City Cakes. It’s a great day to see some of your favorite animals at their most active times…so don’t forget your camera!
