Zoo Move & Groove was forever a daytime fundraising walk/run, but this will be the second year in a row that participants will enjoy a nighttime event through ZooLights!

Graham red squirrel and the Chiricahua leopard frog, but will also help care for the thousands of animals who call the Zoo home.
