Family Sleep in the Deep 

Friday, February 23rd, 2024- Saturday, February 24th, 2024

Did you know that lemurs can sleep 16 hours per day? Or that octopuses can change color in their sleep? Learn more about how we care for our animals, such as lemurs, octopuses, and sharks as we Sleep in the Deep! This overnight program includes a guided tour of our aquatic critters, a chance to meet an animal ambassador, evening snack, and scavenger hunt after dark. Grab your paw-jamas and join us as we snuggle beside stingrays and sturgeons and enjoy a light breakfast in the morning.  *Please note that a parent/guardian must attend with a child under 18. Kids cannot be dropped off.
