Based on the most recent directive from Governor Hogan, we will be temporarily closing the Zoo through Monday, March 30th. All programs and events will be postponed or canceled, depending on the ability to reschedule in the future. We will contact attendees concerning tickets and rescheduling. For questions, please contact

Ever wonder what that bird, or plant, or bug is in your yard? Explore the wild areas of the Zoo with trained naturalists and your family to learn about the local flora and fauna. We will keep track of our discoveries through good old-fashioned field notes!
