Zoo Rules

Zoo Rules:

• Rule Number One:  ENJOY YOUR VISIT!:  The Zoo is a wonderful place to explore, learn, and relax.  Our few rules help ensure an enjoyable and safe experience.

• Be kind to the animals.  If you harass or do something intentionally to harm an animal you will be escorted out of the zoo.

• Crossing any barriers for any reason may result in prosecution.

• Straws, balloons, skateboards, skates, bicycles, scooters, radios, glass containers, fireworks, balls, and frisbees are not permitted.

• Sorry, no pets, however, in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act's requirements on service animals, fully trained service dogs are welcome. Service Dog Policy

• Feeding animals is prohibited in all areas of the zoo unless specifically stated (giraffe/fish).  Our animals have scientifically formulated diets to ensure their health and well-being.  You may feed animals in those areas where feed is on sale from the zoo, but only and exclusively with the feed provided by the zoo.

• For your safety and to help preserve our historic plant and tree collection, please stay on the pathways.  Do not pick any plants or leaves.

• Speak nicely.  Vulgar, profane or disrespectful language is not allowed.

• Small coolers and picnic lunches are welcome to be brought in the Zoo.

• Beer and wine are available for purchase, but guests are not permitted to bring in alcoholic beverages.

• Water bottles (especially reusable ones!) are welcome to be brought into the Zoo. We have a water bottle filler station located next to the fosa exhibit.
