Zoo to Launch Operation: Keeper Seeker

KSAL Staff - May 26, 2016 10:20 am

Beginning this Saturday, Salina CityGo buses will be providing transportation to and from Rolling Hills Zoo.

Beginning Memorial Weekend, Rolling Hills Zoo will be launching their newest adventure, Operation:  Keeper Seeker.  Each week during the summer season, zoo visitors can seek out one of Rolling Hill Zoo’s very own “flat keepers” hidden somewhere in the zoo or museum.  Seek out the “flat keeper” each week and enter to win the weekly prize drawing.  Operation: Keeper Seeker continues through September 5th, 2016.

Fourteen “flat keepers”, modeled after Rolling Hills Zoo’s very own zoo keepers, will be hidden (one per week) throughout the summer.  Spot the “flat keeper” and guests can not only be entered into the weekly prize drawing, but also be entered to win one of the GRAND PRIZES! On Monday of each week a photo of the Keeper along with the first clue will be released (with the exception of Memorial Day, May 30th – that week runs through June 5th).  Additional clues will be released throughout the week along with fun facts about the week’s featured keeper.

All guests may enter Operation: Keeper Seeker but only one entry per visit.  The weekly prize drawing is for a $15 gift card to Rolling Hills Zoo.  The Grand prize drawing will be held on September 6th.   The Grand Prize drawing will be for a Kansas City getaway including four tickets to the SEA LIFE Aquarium and four tickets to the Kansas City Zoo.  Also includes a $250 Visa gift card to help with lodging, gas, or meals. Five other winners will also be drawn for additional grand prizes.  For a complete list of rules and prizes go to www.rollinghillszoo.org.

Rolling Hills Zoo’s summer hours also begin on Memorial Weekend with the Zoo opening at 8 a.m. and closing at 5 p.m. beginning May 28th and continuing through the summer season. Along with the launch of Operation: Keeper Seeker this weekend, visitors to Rolling Hills Zoo will have an opportunity to say a fond farewell to Milton, the southern white rhino, and sign his farewell card prior to his departure to Texas on June 1st.   Guests can also take part in giraffe feedings from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. each day (weather permitting), learn insights about featured animals during keeper encounters scheduled throughout each day and check out the Zoo’s newest exhibit, Frogs: A Chorus of Colors.
