Saint Louis Zoo says
"Egg Hunts" for the Animals
Sunday, March 27, 2016
9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Everybody likes a food treat, and Saint Louis Zoo animals are no exception! The Zoo's enrichment team has planned special "egg hunts" for animals. Visitors can also meet keepers at Keeper Chats. Kids' enrichment activities will be offered from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Schnuck Family Plaza.

Keepers, curators and volunteers plan animal enrichment activities for Zoo animals throughout the year. Enrichment makes life more interesting for the animals. They are encouraged to forage for food, invent “toys” out of everyday items, explore with new exhibit “furniture” such as logs and vines, or even sniff new scents. Enrichment activities are fun for the animals, the visitors and the keepers.

Special Promotion:

With the purchase of each Adventure Pass, animal adoption or membership on March 27, guests are entitled to a bag of candy. Limit four per transaction, while supplies last.
