Great Plains Zoo
Just like humans, animals like presents and treats to add some excitement to their daily lives. During Christmas with the Animals, Zookeepers and volunteers decorate donated Christmas trees with edible treats for the animals to enjoy. Zoo-goers watch the animals unwrap presents filled with fruits and vegetables, munch on garlands made of Cheerios, and nibble on the Christmas trees. Gifts are delivered to the animals throughout the afternoon, with gift openings throughout the afternoon.
