If the kids are bouncing off the walls like bunnies, head to the Zoo for an egg-cellent day. Start by grabbing a pair of bunny ears when you come through the door. Then, hop through the egg scavenger hunt for some sweet candy rewards.
Throughout the day, witness some Easter enrichment treats the zookeepers give the animals. In preparation for the event, volunteers make papier-mâché eggs that the zookeepers fill with surprises. Enrichment keeps the animals thinking and encourages their natural instincts and abilities. It’s also fun to watch the animals rip open the eggs.
As you go through the Zoo, keep your ears perked for the Easter Bunny. He will be traveling on the Easter float waving to all the families. Top off the day with a ride on the Bunny Egg-xpress train. There’s so much to do; you are going to be eggs-hausted at the end of the day.
Egg Day admission is free for Zoo Pass and Platypus Circle members.
See the Zoo’s website for more information.
