Winter Wonder Days

Ever wonder what the animals at Roger Williams Park Zoo do when it gets cold?  They play, of course.  It may be cold and even snowy in January and February, but it is the perfect weather to see animals outside enjoying nature’s cooler temperatures.  Better yet, Roger Williams Park Zoo is open every day from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, and admissions is half price. 

It is always an adventure at Roger Williams Park Zoo.


Owl Charm supports Zoo work

ALEX AND ANI will donate 20% of the purchase price* from each Ode to the Owl Charm sold, with a minimum donation of $25,000 between January 2017 and December 2017, to Roger Williams Park Zoo to provide science and environmental education programs to over 30,000 children from pre-school through high school.

Gifted with sharp intuition and the ability to see through darkness, the owl is a creature of intelligence. Throughout history the bird has been a scholarly symbol, often associated with Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom. Embrace the clever energy of the Ode to the Owl Charm, an emblem of hidden knowledge and innate power.
