This Saturday, March 17, 2012, all kids wearing green in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day will be admitted free when accompanied by a paying adult to Connecticut’s only zoological garden, Beardsley Zoo (one free child admission per adult). There will also be an opportunity to join in on the educational “Green Animal” scavenger hunt.

Located in Bridgeport, Beardsley Zoo is dedicated to the education and conservation of endangered species world wide. You will find bird, mammal and reptile species representing many regions throughout the planet including Viktor, an Amur (aka Siberian) tiger who returned to the zoo this past December. Since it is still a bit cool out, this is the best time to take a walk on the wild side and learn about wildlife you probably only saw in books or on television.

The zoo is open all year around from 9 AM to 4 PM. Please follow this link for more information about Beardsley Zoo's upcoming events.
