Point and Shoot Zootography

For ages 18 and up

It doesn’t take thousands of dollars’ worth of camera equipment to get great pictures at the Zoo. Leave that digital SLR at home and bring your compact point and shoot camera and your vision for a day of classroom discussion and taking pictures all around the Zoo. Experienced Zoo volunteer photographers will give you hints on how to get the best picture and provide hands-on coaching at several exhibits at the Zoo. The class will take a break at noon for participants to get lunch on their own. After lunch, instructors will review class member photos and offer suggestions.

Limited to 16 participants
Fee: Zoo Members $30/ General Public $33
A0513ZT - May 13 (Sa); 8:30 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Adult Only Under the Sea-lion

For ages 18 and up

Join us for this amazing opportunity to sleep inside the Sea Lion Sound tunnel!  You will talk with Zoo staff about how we take care of our animal collection and then team up to solve a scavenger hunt. After a night hike, we will end the night by laying out sleeping bags inside the tunnel.  You will awake under the sea and hopefully under a sea lion! This overnight includes a catered dinner and continental breakfast.
