EXCURSION: We are planning a group trip to the Minnesota Zoo at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 22, for anyone interested in joining us!
We've arranged a special greeting and overview of the zoo from their Chief Animal Care, Health, Conservation, and Behavior Officer, Geoff Hall.
Anyone wishing to attend will need to purchase their tickets in advance, and please note that transportation will not be provided.
We will be meeting at a different spot than the main entrance - in between the lifesize statues of bison!
Tickets to the zoo must be purchased in advance through www.mnzoo.org.
