Sea lions, penguins, and anemones! Oh MY!  You and your family will see that life under the sea is really different than anything we have up here!  We will explore some of the amazing adaptations that the Zoo’s sea creatures use to live in the marine environments.  

We will spend the evening exploring the zoo trails, having exciting live animal presentations comparing land vs. sea animals, enjoying interactive games, and more!  After resting our heads we will wake up to the pinnipeds! 

Evening snacks, continental breakfast, and admission to the zoo after the program ends on Saturday are all included in this package.  You will be “camping” in our climate controlled auditorium.  Once registered you will receive an electronic confirmation with details on items you and your family should bring along for this overnight adventure.
