Everyone likes a treat, and the animals at the Zoo are no exception! Visitors can watch these special "egg hunts" and learn about their favorite animals.
The enrichment team at the Saint Louis Zoo has planned special "egg hunts" for animals and families are invited to watch.
Keepers, curators and volunteers at the Zoo plan enrichment activities for the animals throughout the year as a way to make life more interesting for the animals. The animals are encouraged to forage for food, invent "toys" out of everyday items, explore with new exhibit "furniture" such as logs and vines, or even sniff new scents. Enrichment activities are fun for the animals, visitors and the keepers.
The Enrichment Eggstravaganza will be held on Sunday, April 21 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Saint Louis Zoo. Kids' enrichment activities will be offered from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Schnuck Family Plaza.
