Did you know that there are many ways to stay connected with the happenings at the Zoo? Our blogs are a great place to start, but are you a fan on Facebook? Are you receiving e-Nooz? And being a Zoo member ensures you a copy of our quarterly publication – ZooNooz. These are the best venues to learn about Zoo events, contests, giveaways and news.
Our e-Nooz is our connection to Zoo fans via e-mail. News and reminders are delivered right to your inbox in a concise, informative format. Signing up for e-Nooz is easy – just go to the Zoo’s Web site, click on the icon button with the elephant (Genny C.) and submit your name and e-mail address. Just below Genny C. on the Web site is the link to our blogs. Click on the button with the African grey parrot (Minnow) to be directed to the Zoo’s blogs. These blogs are the best way to get frequent, behind-the-scenes looks into the activities of the animals, zoo keepers, staff and volunteers.
For those who just can’t get enough of the Zoo, our Facebook page is updated daily, often more than once. Fans can see excellent photos taken by docents, zoo keepers, visitors and staff. Our page will also alert you whenever a new blog is published on our Web site. Recent giveaways included a painting done by female polar bear, Aurora, and $75 worth of winter Zoo gear from the ZooShop. We received many entries that resulted in three very happy winners! To become a fan on Facebook, visit the Zoo’s Web site and click on the tiger with the arresting eyes (Katya). You will be redirected to Facebook where you just click the “like” button to receive our updates to your wall. So, be sure to become a fan and check in with the Zoo daily.
