Interpreter Talks

If you are looking for fun things to do with children during a day at the zoo, be sure to take in our interpretive talks where our engaging education interpreters share information about our animals. These presentations may include a display of animal artifacts like skulls, eggs, feathers, fur, bones and teeth – and lots more. On your next visit to Penguin Plunge be sure to stop by and visit with the interpreter on duty and see what interesting things they’ve brought with them for ‘Show and Tell”. See the daily program schedule for times and locations. Thank you for joining us at the zoo.
