The Sedgwick County Zoo will be celebrating all things ape this weekend during ape awareness.
Friday through Sunday, visitors are encouraged to learn more about gorillas, chimpanzees and orangutans. Activities for all age groups will include participating in keeper chats, learning about ape enrichment, discovering recycling opportunities, and investigating the struggles that apes face. There will also be ape merchandise available to purchase, with proceeds going toward ape conservation projects.
Ape awareness weekend runs June 22 to 24, from 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. each day. Zoo admission is half price on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Zoo members get in free with their membership card and a photo ID.
