Modern zoos strive to educate visitors of all ages about the wondrous wildlife from around the globe, as well as conservation needs and simply fostering an appreciation for wildlife and vegetation in general. And zoos house many thrilling experiences and family fun — up-close encounters with cold-weather and desert-dwelling creatures, feedings, funny water shows, taking a trip on a safari train, educational programs for the kiddos like story time and crafts, as well as for those a bit older like assisting zookeepers and gardeners… and more! Once you’re through the gate, enjoy the day and come back home, make this your ticket to remember the animal awesomeness! Just admit your creativity with this two-page zoo themed scrapbook spread!
