Otterbahn Virtual Ribbon Cutting
It has always been customary for the Gladys Porter Zoo to host a ribbon cutting to showcase its new exhibits, inviting city officials and the public to share in the excitement, but because of social distancing, that isn’t possible this time around. However, the Zoo utilized a different alternative to invite everyone to join us!
At 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 27th, the Zoo will be premiering its first ever virtual ribbon cutting for the unveiling of its newest exhibit, the Otterbahn, which will be the home to North American river otters. We would like the public to log on and join in on the fun from wherever they are at, so they can view the exhibit through our various social media platforms: Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram.
We also would like to invite the public to see the North American River otters for themselves on August 28th when the exhibit will be open to the public. Our new hours of operation are Fridays from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. To make your reservation or for more information, visit www.gpz.org
