Idaho Falls Zoo patrons will now have one more week to enjoy the Zoo during its regular season! The zoo will be open daily through Sunday, Oct. 14 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 because of the colder nighttime temperatures, the tropical birds and reptiles are being moved to their winter quarters inside the zoo and 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. 25, 26 and 27 and for Zoo Lights on Oct. 29 and 30. 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 and Shelley.
Remember, even when the zoo is closed educational programs are still offered including monthly toddler classes, winter and spring break mini camps for kids and Zoomobiles – the educational outreach program where staff members bring animals to the classroom.
