Father’s Day at the Zoo

June 19 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

Celebrate Father’s Day at the NEW Zoo & Adventure Park! All dads will receive FREE admission to the NEW Zoo on Sunday, June 19th, plus half-price zips at the Adventure Park. Both discounts will be applied in-person, on arrival to the Zoo or the Adventure Park.

While you’re here, say hello to the NEW Zoo’s newest fathers! Burrowing owl Sol and his mate Luna no longer need to bring food to their five-month-old son Eclipse, but the little owl is still learning survival skills from both parents. Laughing kookaburra dad, Maverik, is busy behind the scenes working with his mate, Blue, to keep up with the constant demands of their three rapidly growing chicks. The little chicks were just named last week: Basil, Peppermint, and Wasabi.

Finally, it’s always fun to watch Japanese macaque Arashi as he helps protect little one-year-old daughter, Tatsu. She loves to follow him around, bounce off his head, make mischief, and do all sorts of naughty things that he would not allow anyone else to get away with!

While you’re here, be sure to take advantage of the “edZOOcational” opportunities provided by the NEW Zoo’s Summer Interns! Discovery Stations and Animal Encounters will happen throughout the day, plus the Giraffe Feeding Experience and Children’s Zoo Feeding will be open for limited hours. See the full schedule of events here: newzoo.org/2022/05/27/summer-programs-return

The NEW Zoo will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on June 19th, and the Adventure Park will open at 10:00 a.m.
