Family Overnight Snooz-a-pa-ZOO-za: Winter Brrr-ds

This event has passed. Click here for information about upcoming Education events.

Join us for our next family overnight, Snooz-a-pa-ZOO-za: Winter Brrr-ds, which will take place on Friday, Feb. 19.

This weather is for the birds . . . literally!   Not all birds fly south for the winter, and some birds live in the southern hemisphere permanently.   Join us for this family overnight to discover the wonders of winter brrr-ds. During your adventure, you’ll go behind-the-scenes with penguins, meet an owl, and learn how our feathered friends spend their winter season.   Enjoy exploring the zoo trails, meeting zoo animals, playing special games, roasting marshmallows over a fire, and much more!

Who can attend?

This overnight is open to multiple families with children ages 6 – 17 years, allowing them to come together to enjoy our overnight experiences.   All children must be supervised by a guardian or parent, and the zoo requires one adult for every four  children.


Friday, Feb. 19, at 6:30 p.m. until Saturday, Feb. 20, at 10 a.m.


$35 per person for members, $45 per person for non-members. For more information on our Family Overnights, call (918) 669-6221, or email the Education department at
