Summer Animal Enrichment Event at the Oklahoma City Zoo


July 02, 2021 to July 02, 2021
10:00 AM until 02:00 PM


Watch as some of your favorite members of the Oklahoma City Zoo’s animal family receive tactile (touch)-themed items created by their caretakers. Certain animals will be feeling those summer vibes as they engage with bubbles, mud, ice blocks and more. These interactions are designed to encourage natural behaviors while providing new stimuli for our animals to enjoy. Guests will also have an opportunity to talk with the Zoo’s expert team members to learn more about the Zoo’s enrichment program. Handouts with the Summer Enrichment Event schedule will be available at the Zoo’s Guest Services and ZOOfriends offices in the entry plaza. The schedule will also be available on the Zoo’s Facebook page.
