Beardsley Zoo comes to The Buttonwood Tree Saturday, April 14th

Yes, you read that right! Animals from the Beardsley Zoo involved in the Animal Enrichment Program will take the ride up from Bridgeport to visit with kids of all ages Saturday, April 14th from 2 to 4 pm. The artwork of the animals is displayed at TBT for the April Art Show. Come meet the folks of the American Association of Zookeepers and their animal friends. No worries, the bears and tigers aren't available tomorrow, but you can see their artwork! Buttonwood is open 7 days a week, so drop by sometime!

We thank Sarah-Jane Ripa for sending the Zoo folks our way! (Sarah-Jane Ripa, Student Services and Outreach Coordinator Continuing Studies & Graduate Liberal Studies at Wesleyan University)
