Utica, NY-   Mid-Winter School Break has arrived again and the Utica Zoo has in-person and virtual options to keep your kids active and learning!

The Zoo will be offering In-Person Guided Expeditions to different areas of the Zoo each day with each expedition led by a Utica Zoo staff member or docent. Each group will be limited to 15 people, and masks will be required for the safety of all. Expeditions begin at 11:30am daily from Monday, February 15 through Friday, February 19. Cost is $8 per child or adult for Utica Zoo members, and $16 for adults and $13 for children for not-yet-members. Pre-registration is required. More details and pre-registration info available at UticaZoo.org/midwinterbreak.

For those who are looking to experience the Zoo from the comfort of their own home can take advantage of Virtual ZooMobile programs as well. Each virtual ZooMobile includes a live, interactive presentation of three ambassador animals. A zoo educator will present each animal and answer questions from the group. Virtual ZooMobiles take place on Monday, February 15th and Tuesday, February 16 at 10am, with a Virtual Hatchlings program designed for kids aged 2-5 at 10am on Thursday, February 18.
