Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and at Zoo Boise we have several ways you can show your love to that special someone in your life.
- Woo at the Zoo Adult Night
Woo at the Zoo – A Wild Valentine’s Celebration for Adults (ages 18+) on February 16 from 4-7pm.
Birds do it. Bees do it. Snow leopards do it. Find out how animals at Zoo Boise woo each other and Woo at the Zoo. Open to both singles and sweethearts 18 and older, this memorable Valentine’s Day event will reveal the intimate secrets of exotic animal mating and dating – from the humorous and tawdry to passionate and subtle. Enjoy a guided stroll through the zoo, presentations by zookeepers regarding animal breeding in zoos, up-close animal encounters and other animal-amore-related activities. A pasta dinner, dessert, drinks, photos with your sweetheart, and take-home chocolate are included.
Cost per person: $45 for zoo members and $50 for nonmembers.
- Name a Cockroach
Show your love this Valentine’s Day by naming a Zoo Boise cockroach after that special someone, your best friend, or your favorite family member. After purchasing, we will email you the certificate. Just respond with what you want to name the cockroach (must be approved by Zoo Boise staff) and we’ll add it to the website. The cost is only $10 or pair it with a discounted behind the scenes tour to give an extra special gift!
