Trip to the Zoo

April 13, 2016
Grey Hares / NOVICE

A Trip to the Zoo! Our last visit to the Zoo was a success. There are the new heavy horses to see and take a ride if desired. The polar bear cubs have moved to the larger area and by April may be with the older bears. The snow leopard cubs are on display and by April will have grown. The animals tend to be more active in the cooler temps. Chris volunteers at the Zoo so she knows it well.
