Visit with Santa presented by Bank Newport
December 7, 2023
5:00 PM–7:00 PM
Take a trip to the tropics and experience the Faces of the Rainforest like never before! After a hot breakfast buffet held in the nearby Meller-Danforth Education Center, you’ll make the short walk to the rainforest building. There, you will visit with the staff that care for the animals as you join the giant otters and their keepers behind the scenes for a training session, go below the neighboring building with operations staff as you inspect the maze of pumps and pipes that make up the exhibits life support system and explore the free flight aviary with the rest of the rainforest residents before it opens to the public! Capacity is limited to 30 participants, so register early!
Cost: $76/members, $96/non-members
