TOLEDO - Starting Saturday, several activities will start off the summer season at the Toledo Zoo.
It starts with animal feeds and enrichment demonstrations. From orangutans, penguins and otters to hornbills, snakes and sharks, watch animals chow down or interact with keepers and enrichment objects. It's fun for visitors to watch and meaningful for the animals, too. Animal feeds and enrichment demonstrations are free with regular zoo admission. The full schedule is on the zoo's Web site at toledozoo.org/feedings.
In Nature's Neighborhood discover the Play Stream, along with animals in the Forest, an interactive green screen in Jumpin' Junction and kids' programs in the Workshop. Outdoors at the Fisher-Price Little-People Discovery Stage, enjoy daily stage shows with animal stars.
Opening for the season, June 2, is the Butterfly Conservation Center. Each day, visitors can take free guided tours at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to learn more about native butterflies and see staff at work helping to protect them. The center will be open through July 29.
From May 26 through Sept. 3, the Toledo Zoo is open daily from 10 a.m. 5 p.m. For more information, visit toledozoo.org or call (419) 385.4040.
