Event Info

 Celebrate the newest waddler, Anna, and her colony of black-footed penguins during a weekend devoted to the aquatic birds. African penguins are an endangered species and their populations need our help to recover.

Touch Station – Visitors will see and feel penguin bio-fact materials including real feathers and eggs. Education docents will be available to teach visitors about these flightless sea birds.

Games and Crafts – Children will get creative and make their own penguin craft and participate in exciting penguin-themed games.

Penguin Feedings – These daily demonstrations show visitors how keepers feed the penguins. (Feeding times are subject to change on a daily basis, based on the animals' needs. Times are posted in the aquarium’s lobby each morning).

Gather round for penguin story time!
