Audubon Zoo Hosts Nature at Night

Young explorers can visit Audubon Zoo after hours this fall as part of the popular education series, Nature at Night.  

Back by popular demand, Audubon Zoo is offering the Nature at Night "kid-only" events for children ages 6-12. Youngsters can enjoy a special animal experience, pizza party, an event-themed art project, and a flashlight tour of the Zoo. This series will be offered Friday and Saturday nights this fall starting Friday September 23rd.

Registration for Nature at Night is now open on Audubon’s website. For more information visit

“Visiting Audubon Zoo is always a favorite family activity and even more so when kids can learn about animals and tour the Zoo after dark,” said Audubon Nature Institute’s Director of Education Programs Llewellyn Everage. “Nature at Night events are so much fun and educational as well. Each weekend will have a different theme, so kids can meet animals, learn about where they live, and explore the Zoo at night. One of my favorite things about these programs is sharing how we can all make small changes in our own lives to help protect the natural world. We can all make a difference in saving our environment!”  

Each Nature at Night weekend will feature a special animal theme. Activities and animal encounters will be exactly the same on Friday and Saturday night. Some of the theme nights include Predator Superpowers, Nighttime Neighbors, Armored Animals and more! To accommodate as many families as possible, please register for one Nature at Night each weekend/theme.
