Spring Events at the Dallas Zoo

If you’re looking for some fun outdoor activities for the kids this Spring, the Dallas Zoo has you covered.

The kids and I visited the zoo last week, and, as always, had a great time.  I’ve been to the zoo when it’s hot, and I’ve been when it’s cold…and without a doubt, my favorite time to visit is the Spring and Fall, when the weather is *just right* and we are all happy to be outside walking around!

There are several events coming up that you won’t want to miss!

On March 23rd (and again on April 27th), you can participate in a Photo Safari and Workshop that runs from 8AM – 4PM. This guided tour will provide you with plenty of opportunities to take pictures of the animals, followed by a workshop that will teach you how to best edit your photos to show off your wild subjects. The Photo Safari is $150 for non-members and $125 for members and is open to everyone ages 18+.

Did you know the Dallas Zoo was the first zoo in Texas? On April 6th and 7th, bring the kids and celebrate the Zoo’s 125th birthday.  The entire weekend will be full of fun, family-friendly activities.

April 8th is Homeschool Day at the Zoo.  Starting at 10AM, you can enjoy interactive and educational booths, talk with the keepers, and get fun ideas for new homeschool projects.  We unintentionally went to the zoo on Homeschool Day last year, and it was awesome!  Jack got to touch animal skulls and crocodile teeth and all kinds of cool stuff.  You’ll want to register for this event so you can be sure to take advantage of all the activities and experiences going on that day!

You can find the Dallas Zoo hours and ticket prices here.
