Above summer season Wild Happenings will take place daily, weather permitting. Additional Wild Happenings will take place but the schedule will vary. We were fortunate to receive a 2023 Advancing Conservation through Empathy grant which allows us to approach enrichment from a new angle. Measuring our success means including evaluations in our Wild Happenings schedule. Watch for additional Wild Happenings opportunities at Trumpeter Hornbill, Otter, Tiger & Okapi.
