Witherbee Auditorium and Reggie's Bistro

Have a wild Valentine's Day at the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens, where we'll be celebrating animal mating, dating, and cohabitating with a provocative "birds and bees" presentation by Zoo veteran Jason Jacobs, who will share some of his insights about the pros and cons of relationships and staying single in the jungle with this light-hearted and informative lecture.
A pre-lecture reception featuring sweet treats, champagne, wine, and sparkling cider will begin at 5pm. After the lecture, keep this unconventional Valentine's Day experience going with a delicious, romantic dinner at Reggie's Bistro (additional fee required).

Prices: $25 per GLAZA Member; $35 per non-member.
