Here’s a riddle—when is a zebra not really a zebra? When it’s Z.E.B.R.A. at the Dickerson Park Zoo! Z.E.B.R.A. (Zoo Education Broadens the Realization of Animals) is a program that lets kids get up close and personal with some of their favorite zoo animals. No matter what your child’s interests, there’s sure to be an activity that sounds exciting. They can meet zookeepers (and even help them out with their work), do crafts, and of course, meet some amazing animals! The program also offers different classes and activities for kids of different ages, from toddlers to tweens.
But even if you don’t get a chance to visit Dickerson Park Zoo (it’s in Missouri), there’s still lots of fun to be had on their website! For example, their Zoo Gallery has great photos of some of their amazing animals. You can see zebras as in the current issue of Zoobooks, alligators and frogs from Zoobies, and much more. Take a look—they might just feature your favorite animal!
