Planning to picnic?

Let us know in advance if you want to use the picnic area so we can reserve enough seating for your group. We have six (6) tables, and you are welcome to bring packed lunches or snacks onto the property provided you LEAVE NO TRACES of your visit!

Really important rules to follow so everyone can have a great time!

  • Always remain on the paths/walkways – NO RUNNING!
  • Tapping on the glass is forbidden.
  • No feeding the wildlife.
  • Keep all fingers out of our cages – Birds will bite!
  • Place all trash/waste in trash cans.  And, please clean up after yourselves if you use the picnic area.
  • Keep your voices quiet and calm so that you do not disturb the wildlife or the peacefulness of the gardens for others guests. This also makes it possible for everyone in your group to hear all the information your tour guide gives you.
Wildlife-encounter policy:  Wildlife encounters are at the sole discretion of the wildlife staff and cannot be scheduled in advance.  We do NOT guarantee one-on-one displays or interaction of any of our wildlife.  Exhibited displays can change without notice.
