Experienced Zoo educators share the latest updates on our animal collection and the "inside secrets" of what's going on, all before the Zoo opens for the day. These insider tours provide a new way to explore the Zoo for those who think they have seen it all. Talks include up-to-the-minute information about the happenings at the Zoo with animals, exhibit construction, and more. They also include an animal presentation and, sometimes, animal enrichment opportunities. Each month is different, and it's called Sunrise Surprise for a reason: you don't know what you'll see and learn until you get here!
Your Sunrise Surprise Stroll may include:
* An animal presentation or special animal encounter
* A walk to the scheduled animal visit area, where a keeper spends time with the group, often in behind-the-scenes areas
* Visits to more than one area. Each month is different and the destination is not revealed until the day of the event.
All Sunrise Surprise Strolls include breakfast muffins and coffee served at the end of the program. This gives you a chance to relax and chat about your fun morning.
Sunrise Surprise Strolls are offered on select Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year. The program is for adults, ages 12 and older; ages 12 through 17 must be accompanied by a paid adult. To register, please call 619-557-3963 Monday through Friday.
