Galactic Adventures at the Calgary Zoo 

You deserve a night off from human adulting, but we can’t let you off completely. Instead, we’re offering a chance for you to step up and take a stand for your planet with a Galactic Quest scavenger hunt and movie night. Scavenger hunt entrants will have a chance to win a night stay at Applause Hotel by Clique! We’re calling all Guardians of the Wild to help with planetary salvation. 

This exclusive one night only event is designed for adults ready to unleash their interplanetary warrior, so leave your kids at home. Come take a stand for the species of our planet while eating, drinking, playing games and watching the movie, Guardians of the Galaxy. Being a guardian is rough, but someone has to do it.
