Given the possibility of winter weather, the Zoo will be on a 2-hour delay and plans to open at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 16. We will continually reassess the situation on Monday evening and Tuesday morning and may change our hours further or even close the Zoo if conditions warrant. Check here or the Zoo's social media for the latest update.
