The capuchin, green iguana, and Gardner Mediterranean Aviary exhibits are closed until further notice. Due to the avian flu outbreak, the lorikeet exhibit will not be offered this year. This strain of avian flu, which does not affect humans, can be carried into the Zoo on visitor clothing and may result in serious bird illness or death. Thank you for understanding as we take steps towards protecting our collection.

The public is invited to support Micke Grove Zoo by participating in any of its exceptional education programs available for registration right now, by becoming a  Zoo Member or Zoo Parent, booking a private birthday party, or making a direct tax-deductible donation.
