OC Zoo Celebrates National Zookeeper Appreciation Week
Zookeepers will be giving “keeper chats” throughout the day and delivering special treats and toys to the zoo animals. Guests will enjoy a special talk on “So You Want To Be A Zookeeper” with two star OC Zookeepers at Visitors can learn what a zookeeper’s day entails, see some of the tools of the trade and meet some zoo animals.
