Kids are encouraged to come dressed in zookeeper attire/costume! The first 100 children ages 12 & under will receive a free train ride ticket for Irvine Park Railroad!


Our zookeepers will be giving special “keeper chats” throughout the day. Special talk on “So You Want To Be A Zookeeper” will be given by two of our zookeepers at 10:30am! Visitors can learn about what a zookeeper’s day is like, see some

of the “tools of the trade”, and meet some zoo creatures up close!
