Do you know where some Zoo animals live in the winter? Where does the Zoo store the hundreds of thousands of pounds of food for the animals? If you find yourself asking these questions, don’t miss out on the Zoo’s Behind the Scenes Weekend. The two-day event is a perfect time to see how the Zoo operates behind closed doors. Guests can go underground and step into Winter Quarters – home to animals like the zebra, tapir and red river hogs.

Animals at the Zoo need a lot of food, and it’s all organized through the Commissary. Check out how this vital part of the Zoo keeps it all organized. Then, get an early look at the flowers that will be planted around the Zoo when you tour the greenhouses. Other tours will be available, including the train depot and the Aquatic & Reptile Center. Tours are included in the price of admission. Zoo Pass members get in free with their pass and valid ID.
