Mission ImPopsicle

Ice enrichment is a fun part of the summer experience for our animals. Our care teams freeze water into healthy popsicles of all shapes and sizes to make engaging ice treats that encourage enjoyable activity for our animals. This June through August, guests have the special opportunity to participate in Mission ImPopsicle, a unique chance to donate to the Tulsa Zoo and connect with your favorite animals as they lick, chew or stare at their cool ice creations!


Join us on wildlife adventures while we explore the world around us, make new friends, and celebrate nature!
