About this activity

Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo is that WILD day out in Connecticut that you have always wanted to enjoy with the family!

This popular New England attractions is home to over 300 animals from North and South America. Spend an hour, or spend a whole day as you explore the many modern walk through exhibits perfect for kids to learn about these beautiful creatures.

Not only can they learn about those animals they know and love, but they can learn about the many endangered and threatened species too, including the Siberian tiger, Andean condor and Ocelot. An invaluable lesson on why it's so important to care for our environment and the animals that call it home!

Also at Beardsley Zoo are those favorite species kids know and love, including white-tailed deer, desert Scorpian, giant anteater, two-toed Sloth, Snowy Owl, Vampire Bats and so many more!

You might even come across a few species that you have never heard of before. Red-Rumped Agouti anyone?

Did you know that Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo is so much more than a zoo too! There are great events throughout the year, including the very kid friendly Zoo Patrol, offering a week of zoo keeper talks, behinds the scenes tours, hands-on learning, crafts and more!

Kids might even want to participate in a fun scavenger hunt, or take a ride on the carousel. 

A WILD day out in Connecticut with your name all over it!
