Christmas in July at the Montgomery Zoo

July 22, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Event description:  From zoo animals to our pets at home and even including us, we all need enrichment.  A chance to smell a new scent.  Taste a new favor.  Play a new game or figure out a puzzle.  Enrichment is an effort to tap into and stimulate our basic five senses: touch, sight, smell, taste and hearing.  The result is to stimulate behaviors resembling those for that species in the wild.  It is a lot of trial and error, but it is always fun.

Event fee: Regular admission fee to enter zoo; however, there is no additional fee to view and participate in the Animal Enrichment Day activities.

Sponsored by: ALFA Insurance, Capitol Containers, Gardner Flooring and Designs, Guardian Credit Union, and City of Montgomery, AL.
