Free Zoo Tours This Weekend!

The Buffalo Zoo will offer open tours to visitors this Sunday.

Two open tours will be held on Sunday, March 22 at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Tours will meet in the Zoo’s entry plaza. Visitors do not need to register for the tours, which are free with regular Zoo admission.

The tours will be hosted by the Zoo’s trained docents, and feature some of the most popular attractions such as Sea Lion Cove, M&T Bank Rainforest Falls, the gorilla house. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn some interesting facts and stories behind their favorite Zoo animals and exhibits.

Buffalo Zoo docents are volunteers who go through a 14 week training course. They possess thorough knowledge of the Zoo’s animal collection. The tours will offer participants information about the Zoo’s animal collection that they might not learn during a regular Zoo visit.

The Zoo will offer a pilot series of “docent Sundays” tours on the third Sunday of the next few months.

Anyone who is interested in learning more about the tours, or the Zoo’s docent program may contact the Zoo’s volunteer coordinator at (716) 995-6132.
