For scheduling purposes, we require that birthday parties be reserved no less than one month in advance. If you cannot meet this time frame, we will do our best to secure a reservation but cannot guarantee the availability of an animal encounter.

Due to lack of space, we are unable to hold birthday parties between May and October. If you would like to schedule a group visit, please call the zoo’s main line so we may assist you further. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to have the situation remedied soon!

If you have questions or would like to reserve your Lake Superior Zoo birthday party, please call Anya at 218-730-4500 ext. 204 or email savery@lszoo.org. Space is limited so be sure to make your reservation soon!
