Bee City Zoo Staff & Our Visitors
Our staff takes pride in being customer friendly and approachable, but during these uncertain times, we must take precautions to protect their safety and well-being, as well as that of our zoo visitors.
Zoo staff and visitors should stay six feet apart and avoid handshakes, hugs and other physical contact; wear mask when indoors or when social distancing is not possible.
Visitors will be encouraged to limit your gathering to your individual family or group
Park staff and visitors should follow the CDC guidelines for good handwashing and hygiene at all times:
Wash hands often for at least 20 seconds with soap and water. While zoo staff is doing their very best to ensure soap is available in all restrooms, visitors are encouraged to bring their own soap or hand sanitizer.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
Zoo staff and visitors who feel sick should not work or visit the zoo.
We are happy to be able to provide a place for people to get outdoors during this time. Working together, we can ensure the Zoo remains open during this time when we all need a place to enjoy and make awesome memories .
At Bee City Zoo, we offer special, private animal encounters so you can be up close and personal with a few of our baby and special ambassador animals!
You and your group will be in a private area during your encounter and will have hands-on interaction with available animals.
An experience for the animal lover to treasure for sure!
