An Animal Encounter is a program allowing visitors to get an up-close look at how we care for the animals at the Zoo. Participants will be able to meet and speak with zoo keepers, watch and/or participate in a training session, and help the zoo keepers provide the animals with enrichment.  All proceeds from Animal Encounters help support the care of the animals at the Zoo.
