Friends of Capron Park Zoo host a variety of events throughout the year, both on site at the Zoo and offsite at community or private venues. Each unique event helps to support the Zoo’s mission of delivering education, conservation and recreation into every zoo experience.

We have some exciting activities planned over the next year. See below for a listing of our upcoming events!
