Toledo Zoo Offers Watch it Grow Garden Tour Series

Posted Jun 16th, 2014 by Andi Norman  Category: Community Interest


Animals aren’t the only thing to see at the Toledo Zoo. The Watch it Grow garden tour series takes you through the Zoo’s beautiful gardens to see how they grow, bloom and change throughout the season.

Zoo horticulturists lead these 90-minute tours, discussing such topics as soil preparation, plant identification and selection, and cultural practices. The tours are free with regular Zoo admission, and reservations are not needed; just meet by the historic Conservatory and be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes.

June 18: 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.

July 16: 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.

August 20: 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.

September 17: 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.

While you’re at the Zoo, don’t miss the all-new Flamingo Key, Penguin Beach and ‘Keet Retreat, which just opened May 23. Flamingo Key, sponsored by Toledo Express Airport, shows off the “avian supermodels” that are back at the Zoo for the first time in decades. Near the historic Aquarium, Penguin Beach leads you right through the penguins’ exhibit, along with daily keeper-led penguin feeds sponsored by ProMedica. Just a couple minutes away, ‘Keet Retreat, sponsored by BP, offers a fun new walk-through encounter with these bright, friendly little birds.

Visitor experiences like these are just some of the reasons the Toledo Zoo is rated the #1 zoo in America and among the top ten family attractions nationwide. More information is at toledozoo.org.
