Sunbeam Sundays

Monthly nature walks with the Zoo’s Naturalist for members only.

Member families explore a different natural area of The Zoo on the first Sunday (Member Morning) of each month. Along the way, through games and nature-related investigation, participants learn about the wild animals and native plants that share the zoo grounds with our exhibit fauna and flora. These events are free of charge, but pre-registration is required.

To reserve your space for this event you must be registered on the Zoo’s online store.  If you have not created registration before, click below.  Once you do, you’ll automatically be eligible to sign up for a SunBeam Sunday event.
