Chose From Two Exciting After-Hour Topics:

Nocturnal Adventures - When the lights go out animals use some remarkable adaptations to help them navigate their night time environment.  From seismic sound to odor receptors galore we will discover how animals use their senses to explore the dark.  How will your senses match up against some of the masters of the night?

Zoo Mystery Investigation – Who at the zoo made that poo!?  Help us solve some animal mysteries- from the vet clinic to wildlife exhibits- as we trek around zoo grounds after dark.  Participants will examine animal hair and skin samples, compare blood slides, discover clues from wildlife crimes and much more as you solve zoo mysteries.
