AKRON, Ohio – The Akron Zoo will host an Enrichment Day on Saturday, March 30, 2013 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. During the event animals will be given Easter eggs as part of their enrichment at scheduled times for the public to watch.
Enrichment is anything given to the animals to stimulate their natural behaviors. Although the zoo does enrichment on a daily basis, Enrichment Days give the animal care staff the opportunity to showcase to the public what they do for the animals.
During the event the animals will either be given real eggs or plastic or papier mache eggs with treats inside. Visitors will be able to see enrichment given to the lemurs, jaguars, snow leopards, tamarins, lions, tigers, sloth bears, red pandas and goats.
The Akron Zoo is open 361 days a year. Zoo hours are 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Admission is $6 per person. Children under 2 are free and parking is $2.00. For more information visit http://www.akronzoo.org or call (330) 375-2550.
