Night Prowl at the Utica Zoo

September 11, 2020


Have you ever wondered what the Utica Zoo is like after dark? Night Prowl is your chance to experience the Utica Zoo in a different light; pun intended.

Night Prowl is a great way to enjoy an evening at the Utica Zoo; fun for the whole family! Small groups will be lead on an excursion around the zoo, experiencing fun activities to learn more about nocturnal animals and their adaptations! And you will have the chance to meet some of our very own nocturnal animals!

Younger groups will be lead around the Children’s Zoo area ( a 30-minute stroll), Older groups will be lead around the North Trek Trail ( a 45-minute trek).

Night Prowl activities include marshmallows over the fire, hot cocoa, and fun activities. Grab the family to enjoy a wonderful evening together with all of us here at the Zoo.
