Guess who’s coming to breakfast?
Join us for Breakfast with the Meerkats, an spiritually-inspired overnight adventure with the animals at the Woodland Park Zoo Aug 19-20. We’ll learn from the animals and the keepers, create an enrichment item for the meerkats, sleep in the Zoomazium, and serve breakfast to the meerkats in the morning! A fun and energetic adventure for adults and kids 7 and up.
On this overnight adventure, you’ll learn about life as a zookeeper while learning how to care for some of the smallest and largest animals on earth. How is a gorilla transported? A lion fed? A sick animal healed or a healthy animal made to feel at home? We’ll also have up-close and personal animal encounters with at least two of the smaller zoo animal ambassadors.
The night will consist of a pizza dinner, tours, storytelling, activities, and we’ll also prepare a fun enrichment item for recent arrivals, the meerkats. We’ll be sleeping in the Zoomazium, an indoor play and learning center, where we’ll be surrounded by the sounds of the zoo at night, and since the entire event takes place in shamanic ceremony you may have interesting encounters with the animals in Dreamtime!
In the morning, we will enjoy a light breakfast, and leave for an early morning tour to watch the zoo animals wake up and the meerkats interact with the enrichment item our group created! We finish up at nine a.m. and close sacred space, but your event fee enables you to return for free at nine-thirty when the zoo reopens.
