Leap Day at Woodland Park Zoo!

Leap to Woodland Park Zoo and join staff in celebrating THE AMPHIBIAN! Frogs are an important part of our ecosystem, and Leap Day is a great day to celebrate! Hear uplifting news stories concerning the amphibian extinction crisis including the successful reintroduction and headstarting programs, rediscovery of presumed extinct amphibian species, and populations of some amphibians that are adapting to the effects of amphibian chytrid fungus. Enjoy frog-themed crafts, programming on our leaping friends in Zoomazium and special presentations.
Free with zoo admission or membership.
