Cookie adventure returns to Charles Paddock Mother’s Day
–On Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 12, the public is invited to bring their mom to the Charles Paddock Zoo from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the 9th annual Cookie Adventure, for lots of scrumptious cookies that mom and the whole family can enjoy. All Cookie Adventure guests will be able to participate in fun zoo activities, learn more about some of the truly unique animal residents and enjoy a terrific sampling of tasty cookies while strolling through the zoo.
There are over 200 animal species to enjoy at the zoo and a new exhibit, the Thelma Vetter Red Panda Experience, to enjoy. Many of the zoo residents are part of a globally managed program to preserve animals and their habitats. The zoo features several unique species not often seen in facilities of our size, including fossa, red pandas, Malayan tiger, lemurs and meerkats, as well as many other exciting and interesting mammals, birds, reptiles and insects. Plus experience the animals up close. Unique gifts, as well as refreshments and strollers are available at the zoo gift shop.
