Summer hours start May 1

Ms. Jefferson is ready for extended hours.

The days are getting longer. The flowers are blooming. Temperatures are heating up.

That means it’s almost time to switch to our summer hours. Starting Sunday, May 1, our daily hours will extend to 9 a.m.-5 p.m. That gives you an extra hour to enjoy all of our animal ambassadors and our beautiful facility.

We hope you take advantage of the extra hour and come out to see us! While you’re here, take a look at some of our additional options to make your trip that much more memorable.
