“A big THANK YOU to everyone at the zoo for the Cub Scout Day at the zoo! The tour was not only fun and educational but neat to see behind the scenes. Our tour guide was great – making sure that everyone could hear her even when there were large crowds! The Cub Scout presentation was fun as well, getting to see some animals that we wouldn’t normally see. Enjoyed be able to encourage other members of our Cub Scout Pack to come down to the MN zoo! Thank you again!”  – From a Cub Scout Pack in Wisconsin.
