Upcoming Events

Here’s a look at all of the events and programs currently scheduled at Riverbanks Zoo and Garden. This schedule is (of course) subject to revision. As the year goes on, please revisit this page for any changes.

May 2015

Saturday, May 23

A facilitated, outdoor exploration with Riverbanks staff. Participating families will be loaned a backpack at the site of the Nature Adventure session and receive instructions on how to use the tools and resources contained inside. By using the field guides, magnifying glasses, collection jars and cameras in the backpacks, families can work together to discover new things and learn about our environment. Everyone will reconvene at a specified time to discuss their discoveries and what they learned. No one is an expert naturally; the joy comes in learning and discovering nature together in a safe environment.
Cost: $10 per family per session (plus the cost of admission to Riverbanks Zoo on Zoo days.)
Registration ClosedFamily Programs

Thursday, May 28

Music and flowers after hours—you won’t experience a night like this anywhere else in Columbia! Guests can enjoy live entertainment in the Botanical Garden every Thursday night in May. The event includes a cash bar; food also will be available for purchase.

Saturday, May 30

Gardening and beekeeping naturally go together, and hobby beekeeping is increasing in popularity. During this basic overview of beekeeping, we will discuss the equipment needed, cost of keeping bees, basic care requirements, and preliminary information to help you decide if this is the hobby for you. With this general overview, participants can decide if it is worth the time and investment for a more intensive beginner beekeeping course.
Cost: $10 per person per class.
