Saturday, July 22 | Dinosaurs: Past and Present

Dinosaurs have fascinated humans ever since we started finding their bones. What lessons can we learn from these prehistoric beasts? Join us for a guided tour of Dinosaurs Alive!® presented by Artis REIT. Learn about the dinosaurs of the past and what they have in common with their distant relatives that live in the Zoo today. 


Saturday, October 21 | Polar Bears: Waiting for the Ice 

Every fall, polar bears gather along the Hudson Bay coastline waiting for the sea ice to form. This is a great time of year to come out to the Zoo learn the individual stories of our rescued polar bears and how conservation and research is helping them at the Zoo and in the wild.


Saturday, January 20 | Tropical Escape

Escape those January blues with a trip to the new world tropics at Toucan Ridge. This is a great time to trade winter white for a healthy dose of green and learn more about what makes the plants and animals of this indoor exhibit so unique.
