Carpe P.M., zoo hosts Twilight Tuesdays

The Rodrigues flying fox is one of the rarest bat species in the world. Referred to as “Rods,” they live in the bat cave at the Oregon Zoo.

PORTLAND — With a focus on nocturnal animals, the Oregon Zoo is hosting Twilight Tuesdays once a month through the summer.

The Carpe P.M. event is the third Tuesday of each month from 4-8:30 p.m. Admission is $5 at that time. The July 18 event includes kids’ activities, animal petting and live entertainment featuring the Ben Rice Band, who is deeply rooted in traditional and original blues, from 5-8 p.m. In addition, there’s a Howl & Meow contest from 6:15-6:30 p.m.

The Oregon Zoo is located off Highway 26, five minutes from downtown Portland. For more information, visit
