Thanks to the good weather, zoo patrons will now have one more week to enjoy the Idaho Falls Zoo during its regular season! The zoo will be open daily through Sunday, Oct. 15 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Fall is a great time to visit the zoo to see some of the cold-hardy animals that become more active in the cooler temperatures. Be aware that the tropical birds and reptiles were moved to their winter quarters inside the zoo, so they will not be available for public viewing.
Don’t despair! As always, the zoo will reopen for the annual Boo at the Zoo fundraiser on Oct. 26, 27 and 28 and for Zoo Lights on Oct. 29, 30 and 31. Get your tickets now to one of Idaho Falls’ favorite Halloween events by clicking HERE. Tickets can also be purchased at the zoo gift shop or at Broulim’s in Idaho Falls or Shelley.
Remember, even when the zoo is closed educational programs will still be offered including monthly toddler classes, Thanksgiving break classes, winter and spring break mini camps for kids and Zoomobiles – the educational outreach program where staff members bring animals to the classroom.
