Kids of all ages enjoy this ice cream party around the zoo’s Penguin Coast exhibit, featuring an incredible array of fun activities, entertainment, free ice cream, kid-friendly foods, music, face painters, and of course, demonstrations with our colony of Humboldt penguins!

Yoga with the Penguins

Come do yoga with the penguins! A peaceful (or not so peaceful… have you heard our penguins?) morning with a backdrop of the Rosamond Gifford Zoo’s Penguin Coast exhibit to benefit the Penguins in our care.

Join us at Penguin Coast for a 60 minute yoga session to start your day followed by a keeper chat. This program starts at 8:30 a.m. and goes until 9:45 a.m.
