You may notice some empty bird and pig/hog habitats, as well as altered programming, as we take precautions for the time being to protect our animals against cases of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) that has been reported within 50 miles. We hope you understand, and we apologize for any disruption in your visit.
