NC Zoo: Live Virtual Programs

NC Zoo Programs

Celebrate our natural world this summer by tuning in to these live virtual programs by the NC Zoo. These programs are recommended for children and families.

The North Carolina Zoo is nestled on 2,600 wooded acres centrally located in the heart of North Carolina, just south of Asheboro in Randolph County. With 500 developed acres, it is the world's largest natural habitat zoo and one of two state-supported zoos. The North Carolina Zoo is an agency of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.

All Forsyth County Public Library programs are free and open to the public.
