Embrace a wild celebration of romance in the animal kingdom in honor of Valentine’s Day! This lighthearted, adults-only affair begins with a reception outside Witherbee Auditorium featuring decadent treats, alluring wines, and “animal walk-abouts” where guests can observe small animals up close and chat with keepers
At the heart of the evening is a provocative presentation by general curator Beth Schaefer on some of the most fascinating and unusual mating rituals in the animal kingdom and how they compare with human courtship.
The event climaxes with an intimate three-course dinner (for an additional fee) at Reggie’s Bistro inside the Zoo.
