Don’t miss the 16th annual Bunny Bounce!

April 5th, 2017 · No Comments

Hop, skip, and bounce to Woodland Park Zoo as kiddies scatter for eggs on the North Meadow and animal residents enjoy their own Easter-themed treats at the 16th annual Bunny Bounce.

The spring event offers fun egg hunts for children ages 1 to 8, crafts, animal encounters and eggs-citing zoo programs throughout the day. Space for egg hunts might be limited and is open on a first-come, first-served basis. As part of the zoo’s conservation mission, families must bring their own egg hunt basket or reusable bag. For the health and well-being of the zoo’s animals, candy is not placed inside the eggs—egg hunt participants receive their treats as they exit the zoo.

Lions, meerkats, otters, penguins, and other animals nibble on specially made Easter baskets lined with flowers, berries and other favorite treats. The Easter-themed treats are part of the zookeepers’ ongoing efforts to help enrich the lives of the zoo’s animals, promote natural animal behavior, keep animals mentally and physically stimulated and engage zoo visitors.
