Penguins Lovers Prepare!
Meet and speak with our penguin keepers & trainers for Penguin 101 in our penguin encounter space!
Before interacting with our penguins, you will learn just how amazing these animals are and their conservation needs!
When it's time to "play", participants will be able to select their paint colors, and help work with the penguins to create a masterpiece!
