Where to Find Eco-Explorer


Asian Highlands: Grandma’s House

When you come to the Zoo be sure to stop by Grandma’s House located in the Asian Highlands. Do big cats purr?  How high can a leopard jump?  What is a tiger’s favorite food?  Discover the answer to these questions and many more with the Eco-Explorers.  Grandma’s House is a great place to stay and play.  Eco-Explorers will help you learn about the cultures of Tibet, Nepal, Mongolia and rural China.  Join the Eco-Explorers everyday from 10:00 AM to 6:30 PM as we learn about the diverse animals and cultures of the Asian Highlands.



Nature’s Nightmares!

Be sure to check out our new exhibit (Opening in May of 2010) which will feature misunderstood animals that often give people nightmares. Eco-Explorers will be walking through with snakes, spiders and crawly critters while helping people overcome their fears of some of nature’s creapiest and coolest animals.  Starting in May open everyday from 9:00 AM to 6:30 PM.


Elephant Encounter

Join the Eco-Explorers at Elephant Encounter as they celebrate the culture and creature of the African continent.  Every time you visit the Explorers and animals at Elephant Encounter it is a though you are on an African Safari.  Discover fun and fascinating facts about African elephants and White rhinoceroses.  Visit with an Eco-Explorer at Elephant Encounter everyday all summer long!


Discovery Theatre

During your Zoo visit don’t miss out on a chance to get up close and personal with some animal friends.  Join us in the Discovery Theatre for an intimate education experience. At the end of every program we do audience meet-n-greets; bring your camera and be ready to smile with the fury, feathery and scaly stars of the show.  Eco-Explorers present programs three times a day, seven days a week all summer long.  Show times are 12:30 PM, 2:30 PM & 4:30 PM.
