American Sign Language Interpretive Days
Como Park Zoo and Conservatory is excited to present our new American Sign Language Interpretive Days. The first Sunday of every month Como will have an American Sign Language interpreter on-site interpreting our public Zoo and Conservatory talks. These ten minute talks will be interpreted between the hours of 11:00am-2pm!
Artist, Photographer & Family Photo Hours
Whether you choose the lush greenery of the North Garden or the flowers in the Sunken Garden, this is the perfect opportunity to use the many gardens inside the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory as a backdrop for your holiday family photos. Guests are welcome to bring in their own camera and find the perfect spot for their photo. $5 per person. Please enter through the Historic Entrance of the Conservatory.
Lil’ Explorers Thursdays
Lil’ Explorers is a FREE program from 10:00AM-noon each Thursday in the Visitor Center in the Winter and on the zoo grounds in the Summer. Perfect for the 1-3 year old to meet animal and plant visitors, see story time, play games and many other fun activities. Different theme each week!
Music Under Glass
Join us in the tropical gardens, and beat the “winter-blahs” as live, local musicians play blues, bluegrass and ballads from 4:30-6:30pm. The concerts are free and beer and wine will be available to purchase.
Chat with Jessie, our Public Engagement Education Specialist, about the Endangered or Threatened animals we have at Como and what people can do to help them thrive in the wild. Each week will feature a different animal. S.A.F.E. Sundays occur every Sunday from 1:00-3:00PM.
Senior Strolls & Sunset Senior Strolls
Senior Strolls take place select Tuesdays through April. This is a special time set aside for just for our 55-and-up aged friends. Each month will feature an opportunity to visit a part of the Zoo or Conservatory for a leisurely walk before the crowds as well as special activities and guests. This event is a great opportunity for Seniors to enjoy a free event that encourages being active and social with some adult learning to spice it up.
Sensory Friendly Mornings
Como Park Zoo and Conservatory is an energetic, colorful place full of sensory stimuli, and we know this environment can be overwhelming for some guests. These are some ways that Como strives to provide a positive, welcoming experience for every visitor.
