General Information

We are open 10am-4:30pm everyday except Thanksgiving and Christmas! Reservations are NOT required!
Check out our new series called “Story Time with Poe”; a fun way to bring our Zoo Educators into your home! Each week, we will read a new story along with Poe, our Sumatran Chicken, or one of our other ambassador animals, for your kids to enjoy! Story Time with Poe will also be posted in our Utica Zoo Education group for you to watch and connect with other families! Make sure to join the group for all of our Education programs throughout the year!
Story Time with Poe is free to enjoy thanks to support from our friends at First Source Federal Credit Union! Be sure to visit our website at to learn more about our full line of education programs.
