The Palm Beach Zoo is offering two special “Family Night Owls” overnight programs to be held on Saturday, June 30th and Saturday, July 21st.

Family groups are invited to explore the Zoo after hours and participate in unique encounters with nocturnal animals such as bats, owls, fennec foxes, and many others. The evening will include a guided flashlight tour of the Zoo, a pizza party, and Zoo-themed games and activities, as well as a Continental breakfast the following morning.

The “Family Night Owls” program is designed for children ages six and over, accompanied by at least one parent. Activities begin at 6:30 p.m. on each Saturday evening and end at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday. The cost is $35 per person for Zoo members and $45 per person for non-members.
