Halloween is also a spooky season, so don’t forget to walk through the extinct animal graveyard. Here you will have the chance to see some of the animals that our world has lost throughout the years while learning a little about what they were like and what led to their extinction.

And we have one last little treat for you! On the weekend of Oct. 30 & 31, there will be a submarine photo-opp with Telus World of Science to help promote their new exhibit – James Cameron’s Challenging the Deep. 

Come enjoy Boo at the Zoo! Timed tickets are available online only at movelearnplay.edmonton.ca. You will need to select the date of the event in the calendar search bar. We will not be accepting walk-up admissions – you must book tickets in advance. Please bring reusable treat bags for all of your goodies!
