Seneca Park Zoo contains a number of animals native to Madagascar, including certain species of hedgehogs, geckos, snakes, and cockroaches. In celebration of these creatures' native land, the Zoo will host Discover Madagascar Day on the 54th anniversary of the nation's independence from France. Games and puzzles will be available for children, and docents will provide education about Madagascar and its biodiversity.
Discover Madagascar Day will take place Saturday, June 28, at Seneca Park Zoo (2222 St. Paul Street) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event is free with zoo admission (see website for rates). For more information visit senecaparkzoo.org.
