The Zoo is open year 'round. 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, with last admission at 3:30 p.m. You can have a wonderful time exploring the "wild" winter wonderland with half-priced admission throughout February. A winter visit to the Zoo is a unique way to beat cabin fever, with cold-hardy animals like snow leopards, Sichuan takin, bison, and others more likely to be active, while indoor exhibits like Tropical America, Australasia, and the Textron Giraffe and Elephant Pavilion offer warm and exotic relief from the cold. Guests in need of a warm pick me up can find hot drinks and a warm winter menu at the Wilderness Café, located in Wilderness Plaza in the upper Zoo.

Staff Anniversary: Carlos Flores—5 years! The management staff would like to send a special “ThankYou!” to Concierge Jim Kanelos for working the night of February 10th during our last snowstorm. Jim kept Residents up to date on the latest weather updates and business closings during the storm, and spent the night in the tower to make sure it was staffed in case of an emergency. He is truly a wonderful Concierge! 4
