Don’t Miss These WILD Family Events at Sedgwick County Zoo This Spring

Sponsored by Sedgwick County Zoo.

The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and it’s time to shake off the winter blues! For parents looking to create memorable experiences with their little ones, the Sedgwick County Zoo offers spring activities that paint the perfect day out. 

Celebrate Motherhood in the Wildest Way 

Mother’s Day is always a special occasion, but at the Sedgwick County Zoo, it comes with an added dose of joy. This Mother’s Day, May 12th, all moms receive free admission with an additional paid admission. It’s the Zoo’s way of saying “thank you” to the incredible women who love, nurture, and inspire us every day. 

Don’t forget to bring your camera to capture the precious moments, because this Mother’s Day will be one for the photo album!

Engage with Free Educational Programs 

Spring invites curiosity, and with a variety of free educational programs, your kids can learn about wildlife, conservation, and so much more. These interactive sessions are not only fun, but instill a sense of responsibility for children of all ages. 

Tot Tuesday is a learning adventure for children ages 3-5 along with their participating adult. This program takes place every fourth Tuesday of the month and does not require online registration or advance tickets. Check out the list of upcoming topics here!

Other complimentary educational programs include Citizen Science which may spark interest in the older children! In these programs, you and your family can collaborate with professional scientists and Sedgwick County Zoo by finding frogs, counting caterpillars, and learning about conservation in our local area.

Seal it with Membership 

A spring visit to the Zoo is not a one-time adventure – it can be a year full of them! The Sedgwick County Zoo offers memberships that come with a bouquet of benefits including unlimited visits, early entry, and even discounts on birthday parties. The membership is your all-access pass to explore the Zoo and all of its benefits at your leisure while in a safe and child-friendly location. 

Plus, memberships contribute to animal care and education programs both locally and worldwide! It’s a win-win for families and conservation alike!

Spring at Sedgwick County Zoo is not just another season; it’s a chapter of experiences that moms and kids write together. It’s about the laughter that echoes around animal exhibits, the shared ice cream at Nectar, and the butterflies of excitement with each new encounter. This spring, wrap your family in the warmth of sunny days and cool adventures at the Sedgwick County Zoo.
