Orange is fortunate to have a Zoo just 13 miles away at 1875 Noble Avenue in Bridgeport. Just a 20 minute drive and you will be surrounded by wild animals from around the world. You will find yourself within feet of majestic tigers, wolves, monkeys and birds that you may never otherwise see.
This Saturday, the Zoo offers two special events, one during the day for children, and the other at night geared toward adults.
ANIMAL ENRICHMENT DAY from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
This fun day will include Keeper talks and special displays with animal enrichment items.
Meet many of the Zoo’s volunteers as you play games with some of the same toys that the animals play with and learn if any animals have favorites.
You may even get a chance to make enrichment items for some of the Zoo animals.
WILD WINE SAFARI FOR ADULTS from 6 – 9 p.m.
Join the Beardsley Zoo for an expedition of taste! Featuring fabulous fare from area restaurants and tastings of more than 100 different wines and 60 different beers from around the world and close to come.
Evening festivities also include live entertainment, silent auction, and raffle!
