September 27, Columbia Zoo Field Trip
We travel to Columbia for the RIVERBANKS ZOO AND GARDEN. It’s a wonderful zoo, and always has something new to see. New animals you probably have not seen include a baby Western Lowland Gorilla born June 4, three lion cubs born April 10, and 2 Rock Hopper penguins born in mid June and making their public appearance Aug. 31.
Animal demonstrations are held every day. The schedule of what is happening will be available online that morning and when we check in. Examples:
Sea Lion demonstration
This will be a day trip. We will meet at the tennis court parking lot at 7:25, and leave promptly in car pools at 7:30 for the 2+ hour drive. I like to spend most of the day there, eating lunch on site. I suggest we leave the Zoo around 4 pm. However members of each car pool may make a decision together to leave earlier or later than that.
Admission cost for seniors (62+) is $17.95 pp. Check on line for coupons. Also, an “adult eTicket" can be purchased online for $16.95 through their website.
For more information about the zoo go to their website: https://www.riverbanks.org
If you would like to go, please email me (email@example.com) with the following information:
