Kids can let their imaginations run wild at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo’s newest event – Things I’d Do If I Ran the Zoo, Sunday, April 29 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Inspired by the classic Dr. Seuss book, “If I Ran the Zoo,” the event will teach kids what kind of work the animal keepers, veterinarians, horticulturists and maintenance workers do to care for the animals and keep the Zoo looking its best.
Children and their families will travel to different stations around the Zoo, complete an activity related to a Zoo job and collect a book page. Once they’ve completed all the activities they can assemble the pages into a take-home booklet about what they learned. Event activities are free with regular Zoo admission.
The Zoo will also be holding a Cans for Conservation aluminum can drive that day. All proceeds from the cans collected will benefit Bat Conservation International.
Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Admission is $12.25 per person, $8.25 for kids ages 2 to 11 and free for children younger than 2 and Zoo members. Parking is free. Located at 3900 Wildlife Way, the Zoo is easily accessible from Interstates 71, 90 and 480.
