For the safety of our animal residents and all guests, volunteers, and staff, public encounters (including Butterflies in Bloom and Zoo Farm) will close at approximately 1PM daily for the duration of this extended heatwave. The Giraffe Encounter will also be cancelled.

The rest of Zoo Boise will be open regular hours. Cooling stations and misting tents have been set up all across the zoo to help the animals and you stay cool.
