From enormous elephants to chirpy crickets, the keepers at The Maryland Zoo work tirelessly to ensure that every single animal has the best day every day. Join us on July 27th to learn about the variety of tasks our keepers perform and to participate in hands-on activities to get a feel for the unique and exciting work they do. Guests will also be able to meet keepers all throughout the Zoo as they share their stories—Plus, guests dressed up as keepers for the day will earn buttons at every keeper chat they attend!
