Did you know the Utica Zoo offers snowshoe rentals during the winter? Now you can strap a pair on and visit the animals.

Snowshoe rentals offer visitors to the Zoo an entirely new way to explore the Zoo's wooded trails and beautiful scenery.

Rentals are available any day where there is at least 6" of snow on the ground, and you can rent until 3 p.m. Rentals have to be returned by 4 p.m.

Rental fees are $3 per hour, but you're welcome to bring your own!
