Pocatello Zoo’s “Wild Winter Weekends” begin December 5

After a popular inaugural run last year, the Pocatello Zoo’s “Wild Winter Weekends” will be returning next month.

The 2nd Annual event is slated for Saturday, December 5, 2015 and Saturday, December 12, 2015 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. both days and offers zoo-goers a chance to see the zoo and its animals in a little different light.

“With the holidays underway, we’ll be getting into the spirit by stringing Christmas lights around the exhibits at the zoo and giving the animals holiday themed enrichment treats,” said Peter Pruett, Zoo Superintendent for the Pocatello Zoo.

Attendees will also be offered free hot cocoa and cookies while they enjoy the zoo. Admission is $5.75 for ages 12-59, $4.50 for seniors ages 60 and up, $3.75 for children ages 3-11, and infants ages 0-2 get in free.

Due to construction on the main entrance of the zoo, guests are asked to enter the zoo at the zoo education building, 3101 Avenue of the Chiefs, near the Pocatello Animal Shelter.
