In celebration of springtime, the Los Angeles Zoo is hosting Spring Fling, a five-week-long “EGG-travaganza” that celebrates the season’s bounty of blooms, births, bees, butterflies, and birds. Once just one weekend long, this year’s Spring Fling will cover five full weekends featuring a wide range of activities, including live entertainment, crafts, special animal feedings, an Earth Expo, educational activities, photo ops, and more.

Activities and entertainment are free with paid Zoo admission and GLAZA membership, except as noted.  This event highlights conservation and sustainable living in celebration of Earth Day, along with “EGG-citing” programs, inviting guests to partake in a host of fun, engaging, and educational activities. Spring-themed entertainment for kids includes a monarch butterfly-themed aerialist show, roaming bee and butterfly puppeteers, honey tasting (for an additional fee), a “planting for pollinators” station with a native wildflower seed giveaway (while supplies last), a bee-and-butterfly craft station, springtime photo ops, and more. The L.A. Zoo’s residents get in on the fun with daily up-close creature encounters during Animals & You, showcasing bunnies and other fuzzy critters; along with special animal feedings, featuring Earth Day-inspired treats on Saturday, April 20 and Sunday, April 21.
