You at the Zoo
Did you know that zoos offer more than just seeing animals? I recently visited both the Denver Zoo and the Albuquerque Biopark. I highly recommend a day at the zoo for kids of all ages! It was great fun and I learned a lot, even at my age! Not only can you see animals from around the world and learn about the environments they live in naturally, but many zoos are going green! The Biopark in New Mexico cares for endangered species and has installed energy efficient lighting. The Denver Zoo offers many educational programs about conservation. Go check out your local zoo and find out what they are doing to help the environment.
