Last week we had the privilege of visiting the Austin Zoo. This is a beautiful facility focused on animal rescue and rehabilitation. The animals are obviously well cared for and loved. There several scheduled zoo keeper talks throughout the day and very well maintained feeding area as well. This is zoo is geared more towards the toddler and younger child age group and the facility is set up so kids have plenty of space to run around and easy, and safe, access to all the animals. This is one of Emmet’s and my favorite outings. We usually pack a lunch and stay several hours. It’s a lovely and peaceful environment. The Zoo is starting up a couple exciting new programs that will actually benefit up to age 13! Introducing: Homeschool Nature Series & Winter Workshop Two new education programs are coming to Austin Zoo! The Homeschool Nature Series will have kids learning about biology and participating in exciting labs! Programs are designed for kids aged 7-13 years old. The Winter Workshop is fun for the entire family! Join us this holiday season to make animal treats and human sweets!. Come visit us! For More Information visit the Austin Zoo website! We highly recommend the zoo for a fun afternoon!
