Eco-Themed Enrichment for Earth Day Weekend

We celebrated Earth Day weekend with two days of free animal enrichment! Guests followed the fun as species through the zoo ripped apart edible piñatas featuring environmental themes from CTA buses to sustainable logs (picture above with baby gorilla Nayembi) to the globe itself.

Thanks, as always, to our Volunteer Enrichment Group for designing these amazing piñatas!
