Keeper for a Day

Have you ever wondered what it takes to care for the Tracy Aviary flock? Join our bird care staff for a Keeper for a Day adventure! You will work side-by-side for half a day as you learn about the many details that go into caring for birds.

Come prepared to get your hands dirty as you are immersed into the world of being a keeper! 

Additional Notes: Work alongside a keeper for half a day! The day starts with a morning meeting with the aviculture department followed by a morning check of the birds, exhibit cleaning, diet preparation, feeding, and behavioral observations. This is a behind the scenes working experience where participants will be entering exhibits and helping keepers with various tasks needed to keep the birds healthy.
