The following was submitted by the Stone Zoo:

WHAT: Beat the humdrum winter routine and come out to Stone Zoo during February school vacation week. Watch North American river otters, Mexican gray wolves, snow leopards and others have fun, and learn about neat animal adaptations to the winter temperatures. Just like you, animals can get bored when they’re cooped up all winter, so we have come up with novel enrichment activities to keep them stimulated and happy! Come and see all the creative things we do for our animals, and learn how we keep them active and engaged throughout the winter using enrichment techniques. There will also be crafts and storytelling for guests to enjoy.
