Usually on the first day, there will be a mandatory safety orientation. If you miss this portion of the seminar, you will not be allowed to enter the animal enclosures (but you will be able to attend the remainder of the seminar).

Seminars take place both indoors and out, and weather can be unpredictable. Packing a variety of layered clothing is a good idea. Even in hot weather, long pants and closed-toes shoes are required when entering the enclosures.
