Elmwood Park Zoo – Read All About it!
by Brian Coll
It’s Earth Day and I know I have been keeping my kids busy at home through the fun Live Zoo from the Elmwood Park Zoo. Each weekday at 11:00 the Elmwood Park Zoo has been going “Live” on Facebook and it has been so much fun! Can’t catch it right at 11:00 a.m., that’s okay…. go to their YouTube Channel and see what you have missed. Don’t have kids? Doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy learning about unique animals or maybe learn something new about animals right in our area.
I’m going to share their links to Facebook and such, but before I do, if you haven’t checked out the Elmwood Park Zoo in real life, now is the perfect time to buy a yearly pass, it is at a discount right now and it will help care for the animals during this unique time in history.
Long before Facebook, long before Al Zone took over as director of the zoo, my parents would take me and my sister to Norristown to look at the animals at the “Zoo”, boy has it come a long way in recent years thanks to Mr. Al Zone. While the zoo may be close to 100 years old, recent technology is really helping the zoo, and honeslty a number of families in the community who have been checking them out on Facebook each day at 11:00, check it out here: https://facebook.com/epzoo

If you are in need of some one on one time with your child an a specialist from the Elmwood Park Zoo staff, they have a unique offer currently: https://www.elmwoodparkzoo.org/education/distance-learning/
I know I have mentioned the director Al Zone a couple times in this article, in addition to Al, there is a great board of directors as some amazing people behind the scenes that care about the zoo. I have to thank everyone involved there from the top down to the bottom. My family has enjoyed every visit to the Elmwood Park Zoo over the past few years and then even further back when my parents would take me and my sister.
Thank you, I know I can’t wait to bring my kids back when the zoo can reopen and maybe we’ll see some new faces there.
