Celebrate Oregon’s favorite rodent at the zoo with keeper talks and activities
Learn about American beavers and find out what you can do to protect their habitats.
Did you know beavers can alter and change the landscape more than any other species on the planet, except for one?
These important dam builders are a “keystone species”—the wetlands they create benefit all types of wildlife.
Join Oregon Zoo keepers and our community partners to learn more about the importance of these amazing animals.
Free with zoo admission.
Parking costs $2/hour or $8/day and lots tend to fill up quickly, so the zoo encourages visitors to take public transport: Take MAX Light Rail to the Washington Park stop or a Trimet bus. Call 503-238-RIDE (7433) or visit trimet.org for fare and route information. Visitors who ride MAX light rail or a TriMet bus to the zoo will receive $1.50 off admission with proof of ridership.
