A week ago we went to the Beardsley Zoo with the kiddos and we had a great time.
The weather was perfect, the kids had a blast and we all learned more about animals. There was a show called the Wonders of Wildlife. This is the time we all got close and personal with some of the animals. We learned about the incredible adaptations that different critters have helped them to survive in the wild! Some of the critters they presented to us were an alligator, a red-tailed hawk, a snake, a savannah monitor, and an alligator snapping turtle. We also meet pet-friendly animals, including a dog from the Bridgeport Animal Shelter and some rats, Lion, Tiger, and Bear. At the end of the show we were able to come up close to certain animals and touch them with the help from the staff. We were happy to make a donation to help the animals. This show is at 11:00am & 2:00pm on Wednesdays through Sundays until Labor Day. We made a day trip out of the zoo. We packed lunch and had ice cream at the end of our day. We also went to the carousel and hit the gift shop because the kids wanted a memory besides pictures of their trip to the zoo. Here are some pictures of our fun time!
So if you are looking for a nice day trip not too far away, where all of you can learn, please visit the Beardsley Zoo. I was so glad that we found a coupon (free child admission with the purchase of an adult ticket and this coupon) because it can get a bit expensive with all the kids. So now that you have it so close to you and a free admission, there is not reason why not to go! Have great fun visiting and learning!!
