Upcoming Events

Like many other facilities, the Dakota Zoo is monitoring the current Covid 19 situation and contemplating how best to react out of concern for our visitors, staff and animals.

Reluctantly and with an abundance of caution, effective March 20th the Dakota Zoo is currently closed and will remain so until it is deemed safe to reopen.

In addition, the Easter Egg Hunt which was planned for April 4th is being rescheduled for a future date yet to be determined.

Not to worry if you are a zoo member, the duration of each membership will be extended for the amount of time that the zoo is closed.

We look forward to getting past this hurdle and getting the Dakota Zoo open as the weather and Covid 19 situation improves!

Support the Dakota Zoo by becoming a zoo member today. Annual memberships are available online.
