Safari through the grasslands and explore Garden City's favorite family destination: Lee Richardson Zoo!
Every membership to the Friends of Lee Richardson Zoo is packed with adventure and a full year's worth of drive-thru admission-free fun. Lee Richardson Zoo is committed to provide the highest quality care for our animal residents. Your gift directly supports efforts to enhance animal habitats and improve the quality of life for our animal ambassadors.
Friends of Lee Richardson Zoo are pleased to present the 22nd annual “Boo! At The Zoo,” Saturday, October 22, 2016. This year, all gates open at 4 p.m. Lee Richardson Zoo will be closed all day October 22nd for preparations. Pumpkin carving contest drop off is 9-noon and 1-5 p.m. Friday, October 21st at the zoo’s Finnup Center for Conservation Education, 312 Finnup Dr.
The evening includes a trick-or-treat trail with ‘spooktacular’ treat stations, creepy creature encounters with zoo docents and a journey through a ghoulish graveyard. Guests are asked to come hungry with an ogre-sized appetite, as the Safari Shoppe is selling Frankenweenies (hot dogs), Dippin’ Dots ice cream and a variety of snacks and beverages. Support the Zoo’s efforts to reduce waste by bringing your own trick-or-treat bag from home!
