Backstage Pass

page header

Join the Education Department and keeper staff on a great adventure. Backstage Pass gives you access behind-the-scenes of the anteater barn, the giraffe barn or the elephant barn.

Once the animals leave their night holding areas and are safely out on exhibit, travel "backstage" at the Zoo, and learn about animal care, behavior and conservation.

Meet a keeper who can share information about the animals they care for as only they know them! Share treats with a giraffe! Watch an anteater lick yogurt from a cup, and meet a tamandua! This special tour is filled with experiences and information you cannot get anywhere else.

This tour will require a 10-15 minute hike to the animal barn.

Ages: Families - Ages 5 and up. All children must be accompanied by an adult (limit of 2 children per accompanying adult).
