Exhibit Adjustments

Slight adjustments have been made to ensure the health and safety of our guests during phase one of our reopening.

Daily creature feature and public animal feedings have been suspended during phase one of our reopening to avoid crowding in specific locations. RiverWorks Splash Zone boats have been remove from the water, and the Web Lab is closed due to the high touch nature of the objects within. These adjustments account for a fraction of the exhibits and aquariums available to guests.

The William M. Black is reopening on Saturday, May 30 following some restoration work.
