Celebrate Little Joe’s 27th Birthday!
February 17 @ 10:00 am$10.95 – $16.95
It’s Little Joe’s 27th birthday, and you’re invited to the party! The gorilla exhibit will be festively decorated, and the gorillas will enjoy treats made especially for them. Guests will also have the opportunity to sign a giant birthday card for Little Joe and enjoy cake from Montilio’s Baking Company, available first come, first served. After you’ve had your fill of cake, be sure to explore the rest of the Tropical Forest, where there will be special zookeeper chats and crafts for February school vacation week.
In honor of Little Joe’s birthday, help gorillas by recycling your own phone or tablet. Franklin Park Zoo has teamed up with Eco-Cell, a company that partners with zoos across the country, to collect your recycled cell phones and refurbish them for reuse. Visit the gorilla exhibit in Franklin Park Zoo's Tropical Forest, where you'll see a large Eco-Cell collection box in which you can drop off any used electronics listed on our website.
Please note: the gorillas will go on exhibit at 10:15 a.m.
