Chimp Chat & Chew

Held after select Discovery Days, “Chimp Chat & Chew” enables preregistered guests to get a more intimate look at the chimpanzees and personal access to Chimp Haven staff. Guests receive a behind-the-scenes tour, lunch, a presentation by a staff member, and an up-close-and-personal look at our residents. Each Chimp Chat & Chew presentation is different, in conjunction with that day’s Chimpanzee Discovery Day theme. This program is only suitable for adults and children six years of age or older.  Fees are $50 for adults; $25 for children (12 years of age and younger).  Reservations are required for this event as we have limited space available. This event often fills up early, even months in advance, so please call early to reserve a spot for you, your family & friends!
