Did You Know?
The Screech Owl keeps in contact with its mate using a trilling song, known as the "bounce song."
Thank you to everyone who participated in Boo at the Zoo! Mother
Nature held off the rain and gave us a beautiful fall backdrop to enjoy loads
of Halloween activities. During the 4 day event we were visited by more than
6500 ghosts, goblins, princesses…and one kid in a really cool transformer
costume! The Zoo Members were out in record numbers and the Community Partners
offered tons of games and giveaways. A
special shout out to the hula-hoopers…what a fun activity to watch and
play! Volunteers and docents played a
huge part in making Boo at the Zoo a success.
It takes more than 500 volunteer hours each weekend to keep the Boo fun
moving along! From the partners to the
volunteers to the guests and zoo members, huge THANKS for a wonderful couple of
holiday weekends. And from all of us at
the zoo, enjoy a fun and safe Halloween!
