Winter in Outside In: Winter Tales
Start Date: 2/4/2019Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Date: 2/4/2019End Time: 4:30 PM
Event Description

Warm up with a winter hibernation tale with Marty the Moose. Wear your pajamas, grab a pillow and learn what animals do in the winter.

From February 2-8, the animal enclosures in Outside In will get a festive winter makeover! We’re bringing the winter weather to our animals this year as snowflakes fall all over the exhibit. You might a hedgehog snuggle in a cozy mitten, a tarantula chilling with a snowman, or a snake catching snowflakes on its forked tongue.

What is enrichment?

Keepers develop tailored enrichment plans to keep our animals happy and healthy. One day, a parrot might enjoy special music, a bunny will play with new toys, or the raptors will soak up “rain” during a spritz of their enclosures. The rain encourages the birds to preen their feathers as they would in the wild.

These enrichment activities prepare the animals for the spotlight. With help from Academy teacher naturalists, the animals teach visitors about endangered species, habitats, exotic pet challenges, city animals, and backyard creatures.
