Condors of the Columbia Grand Opening

May 24, 2014 - 09:00am to 04:00pm

Come nose-to-beak with the continent's largest bird

For the first time, Oregon Zoo visitors will have the unique opportunity to see colorful, intelligent and highly endangered California condors and learn about the survival challenges they face.

Condors of the Columbia will tell the story of condors' historic fall and current rise and the challenges these birds face today from lead and trash in their environment. It will also guide visitors through the zoo's decade-long condor recovery effort in conjunction with the United States Fish and Wildife Service, San Diego Wildlife Park, the Los Angeles Zoo, and many other partners.

Grand opening weekend events include Animal Talkers and a scavenger hunt for kids.
