Red Panda Day

Join us on Saturday, September 20th from 11 am to 3 pm as we celebrate Red Panda Day at Assiniboine Park Zoo! Red pandas are part of the Species Survival Plan at Zoos across North America to ensure that there is a viable zoo population for many years to come.

There will be a variety of activities happening all day to celebrate our red pandas, including facepainting, storytime (11:30, 12:30, 1:30 and 2:30 pm), a red panda positive reinforcement session (2:00 pm) and and artifact table. However, the most important activity of the day is to become a Red Panda Ranger! Red Panda Rangers help to spread the word about red pandas.

There will be a silent auction of paintings created by Assiniboine Park Zoo's very own red pandas! All funds raised will support the Red Panda Network.


Journey to Churchill Caching Event

Hosted by Skoki and friends at Beaverlodge School, the Assiniboine Park Zoo and the Manitoba Geocaching Association, this event will begin with an introduction to the GPS and geocaching. GPS units will be available for those who don't have one and would like to find out more about this fun and addictive family friendly activity. Several new caches will be unveiled and made available for finding throughout the Zoo area for this event.

Visit the Manitoba Geocaching Association website for more information.


Construction at the Zoo

Site improvements at the Zoo will continue in 2014 as part of the Assiniboine Park Conservancy’s $200 million redevelopment. Visitors may notice changes and may experience minor construction detours as they navigate their way through the Zoo’s 80 park-like acres.

With the completion of the new Journey to Churchill exhibit, Assiniboine Park Zoo offers an all new experience to its visitors. As we continue to upgrade our exhibits and amenities, will will make every effort to minimize the impact of construction and maximize your enjoyment of the Zoo.

Thank you for your patience and support as we continue on this journey to excellence. Visit www.imagineaplace.ca to learn more about this exciting transformation and how you can help make it happen!
