Lorikeets! return to Micke Grove Zoo April 30 | Animal Lovers
STOCKTON - Some of the world’s most beautiful parrots are headed back to Lodi this summer as the popular "Lorikeets!" exhibit returns to Micke Grove Zoo beginning Saturday, April 30. The exhibit will end its five-month run on Sunday, October 2.
Like last year, these brightly-colored and noisy birds will be housed at the zoo’s temporary Lorikeet Adventure area, an open-air aviary designed for public interaction. Uniquely adapted to be nectar feeders, the lorikeets can interact with visitors who will be able to purchase small cups of food for the birds. Once inside the enclosure, visitors may experience the birds landing on arms, hands and even heads as lorikeets are attracted to the food.
Entry into "Lorikeets!" is included in the price of Zoo admission. Adult admission is $4, admission for youth ages three to 17 years is $2. Children two years and under are free. Cups of lorikeet nectar will be available for $1.
"Lorikeets!" will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily and until 5:30 p.m. summer weekends and holidays. The zoo regularly closes at 5:00 p.m., and on summer weekends and holidays remains open until 6:00 p.m.
Micke Grove Zoo is located in beautiful Micke Grove Park. To reach the park and zoo, take Armstrong Road west off Highway 99 between Lodi and Stockton. Turn south on Micke Grove Road to the Park entry. Micke Grove Park opens at 8:00 a.m. daily. Vehicle admission is $5 per car.
