We had a wonderful visit at the Zoo and Gardens. I think we were the only people there that morning, so it was a quiet, peaceful walk. Some of the zoo enclosures were empty, and I never did see the black bear, but I enjoyed the other exhibits. I think they should put up more information about their animal rescue and rehabilitation program because as I understand it, the birds and other animals would not survive in the wild due to injury. The exhibits inside are really interesting too. Nice gift shop.
