Nature at Night Is Back This Spring at Audubon Zoo

Audubon Zoo’s education series, Nature at Night, that gives children the opportunity to explore the Zoo after hours is back this spring by popular demand. 

Nature at Night features "kid-only" events for children ages 6-12 where they 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 beginning March 11, 2022. 

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

“We are thrilled once again to offer kids an exciting opportunity to explore nature after dark,” said Audubon Nature Institute’s Director of Education Llewellyn Everage. “Nature at Night events are going to be blast! We will be meeting special animal friends, touring the Zoo after dark, and learning all about the natural world and what we can do to protect it. Some of this spring’s themes include giraffes, cats, bats, and endangered species just to name a few!” 

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, and children should not repeat themes. Please only register for one Nature at Night each weekend/theme.
