Embrace this wild celebration of romance in the animal kingdom in honor of Valentine’s Day. The lighthearted affair begins with a reception featuring tempting desserts, alluring wines and “animal walk-abouts,” which include chats with keepers and the chance to observe small animals up close.
At the heart of the evening is a provocative presentation about relationships in the animal kingdom by actress Joleen Lutz, also known for her work as an interpretive naturalist of zoology, who offers insights on animal mating, dating and cohabitating.
The event climaxes with an intimate three-course dinner (for an additional fee) at Reggie’s Bistro inside the Zoo.
Reception: 5 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Lecture: 6 p.m. – 7 p.m.
