Attendees can visit the mountain lions at 8:30 a.m., elephants at 10:30 a.m., sloth bears at 12:30 p.m. or the snow leopard at 2:30 p.m. to see the animals enjoying their eggs. And you can take your turn giving the giraffes one of their favorite items from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Giraffe encounters are $2 for one feeding or $5 for three.

The day also will include a cupcake walk at 10 a.m. at the gazebo on the west green, with visitors paying $1 to try to win a cupcake; a member-only egg hunt at 1 p.m. on the west green, featuring hidden eggs containing a variety of surprises for children up to age 12 (register at www.folrz.com); and as you watch the animals enjoying their eggs, keep your eyes open for the zoo logo on eggs hidden throughout the zoo, then enter the number of eggs you see at the Safari Shoppe for a chance to win a special prize.
