One of the coolest things about the AER is the number of special and unique experiences you can bid on.  Be sure to bid in our live auction for this special tour hosted by our own demure Rotarian - Barbara Swenson!  It's sure to be a good time for everyone in the family - or bring a group of your adult friends for a great experience:  Behind-the-Scenes Tour at The Alaska Zoo with AER Hostess, and Zoo Sponsor, Barbara Swenson.
Tour Includes:
  • Alaska Zoo admission for up to six adults
  • Approximately two hours of casual exploration of the zoo with a private guide
  • Behind-the-scenes visit to Wolf, Tiger and Moose habitats rarely seen by visitors, with ample time for photography at each location
  • Alaska Zoo themed gift bag for each adult with mementos including animal photo notecards by AER Barbara Swenson
  • June-July, 2018 timeframe
Winners will meet Barbara and an Alaska Zoo guide at the zoo entrance on a date TBD in the June-July 2018 timeframe.  Winners will be treated to a walking tour of the zoo with special insights regarding animal rescue, diet, enrichment and training.  Tour includes a behind-the-scenes experience at the Wolf, Tiger and Moose habitats, lending itself to amazing photo opportunities and close encounters with these magnificent animals.  The NEW Moose habitat is scheduled to open in Spring 2018.  So this will be one of the first “behind the scenes” tours with Elf and Cinnamon, the two moose at the Alaska Zoo.  After the tour, winners can roam the zoo at their own pace until closing.
