Your Adventure Awaits
Did you know there’s more to the Milwaukee County Zoo than most guests see? Animal sponsors can venture deeper into the Zoo experience at this behind-the-scenes event. Knowledgeable tour guides will take you off the beaten path to discover how keepers groom, feed and entertain the animals at the Zoo. Tours may include: Flamingo building, Aquatic & Reptile Center, Winter Quarters, the Elk Barn and more!
Not an animal sponsor? Not a problem! Sponsor an animal or join the Kids Conservation Club* anytime through August 23, and you too will receive an invitation! Tours run 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. All zoogoers can enjoy animal talks, temporary tattoos and crafts for kids and learn about the Sponsor an Animal program. Tours, however, are open to animal sponsors only.
Animal sponsors can also enjoy a kids’ scavenger hunt for a chance to win an animal sponsorship, enter a drawing for a chance to win an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the Humboldt penguin enclosure (it’s usually off-limits to visitors), a complimentary, refreshing root beer float and more!
