Birds of a feather flock together in our Flying Feathered Friends Wild Encounter adventure. Learn about the beauty in our skies as you embark on an adventure in the free flight area of our Reptiles and Birds exhibit. Participants will work with zookeepers as they learn about how we care for and train our feathered friends.

This program is for animal lovers and zoo fans from ages 8 to adult. A parent or adult guardian (who does not pay any additional fee, but is counted toward the maximum number of 2 participants) must accompany participants under the age of 18). Cost is just $75 for members ($100 for nonmembers).
