Did you visit the zoo when you were a youngster? We didn't go very often, but I do have memories of the zoo. One of my Aunties would usually plan an outing over the labor day weekend for her family,or sometimes another summer day, and our family would usually be invited along. Most of the outings were to places that would fill one of the cub scout requirements for visiting a local historical attraction or bird watching or some such thing. Since we did some such activity every year, we ended up visiting a lot of fun and interesting places that we may not have done otherwise. The Zoo is one of the places I remember visiting together. Elephants, Giraffes, Zebras, Lions, Tigers, Monkeys, Polar Bears, Birds, Reptiles . . . and so much much more. The zoo also features a petting zoo and a train ride, features that attract any child.
I couldn't find any photos of our visit to the zoo back in the day, but here are some more recent photos from our local zoo's facebook page. I think it's great for children to be able to see and experience as much of the world and it's creations as they can, and I feel that our local zoo does a tremendous job of providing natural habitat and careful care of the animals.
Do you have fun memories of the zoo?
