Pollinator Plant Sale

Loading Events

Join us for our Pollinator Plant Sale every Saturday and Sunday ¬†in May at the zoo’s gift shop, Meerkat Market. You can purchase various plant species for your garden at home, so you can attract pollinator species. Pollinators, such as ¬†butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, are extremely important to the well-being of many plants and crops, so it’s important to provide them with necessary resources.


  • 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays during the month of May.


  • Outside the main gift shop, Meerkat Market, at the zoo’s entrance.


  • All plants are in 2.5″ pots and will be sold for $3.50 each (member and employee discounts do not apply)
  • A specific quantity of each plant will be available for sale each weekend and when that quantity is sold there will be no more available until the next weekend.
  • Plants will not be held for customers during their visit to the zoo.
  • All plants may be planted in full sun locations and almost all require very little watering after becoming established.
