Wild Gatherings

This memory care program, in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association, allows people with early-stage dementia to reconnect with their memories of experiencing nature and interacting with wildlife.

Each Wild Gatherings program is 90 minutes long and offers a new theme and experience for the participants, which includes a focus on a specific species; a private zoo tour; hands-on activities and crafts; and an up-close experience with one of the zoo’s ambassador animals.
