Daylight Saving Time Begins

Tomorrow at 2 am (Sunday morning), we will all be SPRINGING FORWARD one hour!

How does it affect the exotic animals in our care? Much like it effects people and companion animals: everything just seems a little “off” for a day or two. The JZ Keepers make little adjustments here and there with schedules and enrichment, just like we do, and things stay right on track.

Tips to survive time change

VOLUNTEER LANDSCAPING 8 am to 11 am Saturday 03/14

Zoo Area Progressive Partnership and Keep Jackson Beautiful will be leading the Jackson Zoo Crew volunteers in planning and planting spring growth this Saturday starting at 8 a.m. The focus will be on the zoo’s Capitol Street entrance, the flower beds around zoo Admissions, and the Livingston Train Station.

We encourage wearing closed toed shoes and gloves, weather appropriate gear, and bringing any tools you can use and then take back home with you. Good to have are loppers, pruners, shears, small shovels and hoes, and we can always use any extra mulch, people with mowers/weedeaters, and pressure washers.

To participate, please RSVP to the left or email Miss Ginger HERE.

Also, since spring weather can be so touch and go, keep an eye on the Volunteer Landscaping FB event for any changes or postponements.

Interested in becoming a Jackson Zoo Keeper? If you love wildlife, have at least a high school diploma, can lift 50 lbs regularly, and like a challenge, you have the beginnings of a life in animal care.
