Ambassador Animal Meet and Greets

January 29, 2019


Are you thinking about visiting the zoo with a small group of friends or family? Are you wanting to do something special during your visit? 

Whether you have just been dying to touch a chinchilla, see an owl up close, or want to surprise a friend or family member with a unique gift – an ambassador animal meet and greet is the perfect thing to add to your zoo visit! Small groups of 8 or less will get to interact with up to three (3) of our ambassador animals, with an included unique and educational talk by a zoo educator about each animal.

Reptiles, birds, mammals, amphibians, and even INSECTS are a part of our ambassador animal program here at the Utica Zoo, and they are waiting to meet you!
