With opening a new building comes many challenges- the interpreters and zookeepers prepare the public to see the new space – and of course, meet new lemurs. Leap in with us!

Who are zoo interpreters? Zoo interpreters are knowledgeable people who talk to zoo guests about what is going on currently in the animal’s life. They do this in many ways: providing educational facts through show and tell, classes, and through interpreter talks. The amazing zoo staff use artifacts like skulls, teeth, feathers, and eggs to show the public.
It’s the August long weekend, and you’re looking for something fun to do with the family. Or maybe you’re looking to have a great day out with friends. Whatever you have in mind, the zoo has something for you to make that summer day extra memorable! Here are some suggestions to help you plan your visit.
