Keeper chats are a great way to learn about the species that live at the Virginia Zoo from the people that know them best: Zoo Keepers! Keeper chats are held in front of the exhibits and occur on Saturdays and Sundays at 11:30 am and 2:30 pm, weather depending. Be sure to check the schedule in the Zoo’s plaza when you arrive, as Keeper chats are susceptible to change.
