Watermelon Day

August 7

Included with admission

National Watermelon Day is in August and we are hosting a celebration for this sweet summer treat!

Pop-Up Opportunities: We will be feeding our animals watermelon treats occasionally during our day of celebration and creating some special watermelon-themed enrichment that will be placed in animal exhibits for a variety of our animals to enjoy! Check out our Insectarium and Butterfly House for watermelon enrichment, or come to any of these special watermelon feeding sessions:

  • 10 am: Farmyard
  • 12 pm: Bears
  • 1 pm: Farmyard
  • 2 pm: Lemurs and Radiated Tortoise
  • 3 pm: Carolina Wildlife
  • 4 pm: Bears

Want to join the fun while also helping our animals? You can donate a watermelon so our Animal Care Staff can treat our animals to watermelon all summer! There will be a donation box set up in our admission areas for your watermelons.

Don’t forget to stop by our café while you are here to check out some of their special watermelon offerings all week!
