The countdown to summer is on! But you still have time to cross some fun off your Spring bucket list. One place that is perfect to visit in the Spring is the Bronx Zoo. While there are so many ways to enjoy your visit throughout the year, we’re sharing 4 reasons to visit before Spring is over:
Celebrate the World of Birds 50th Anniversary
Can you believe that the iconic World of Birds exhibit is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year?! With 1,500 birds from habitats all over the world, this exhibit can take you to deserts, rainforests with waterfalls, forests, and more.
Be sure to visit the weekend of June 11th and 12th when you can:
- Learn all about the different species of birds
- Get hands on with fun birding crafts – create a bird-themed sun catcher to take home!
- Meet some very large bird puppets
- Check out the bird meet and greet – your chance to see some of your favorite birds up close!
Check out Dinosaur Safari
And speaking of birds- did you know that they are the descendants of dinosaurs?
How are birds and dinosaurs similar you ask?
- Some dinos had feathers
- Both lay hard-shelled eggs
- Some dinos also walked on two feet
- Nest making!
So after visiting the World of Birds, head over the the Bronx Zoo Dinosaur Safari to experience 52 life-size dinosaurs and pterosaurs. And this year there are more animatronic dinosaurs than ever before on the brand NEW, immersive outdoor walking tail.
Some fun dino facts:
- The Quetzalcoatlus was the largest flying animal to ever live. As big as an airplane!
- Pentaceratops means ‘five-horned face.’ This dinosaur had the largest skull of any known land animal and would travel together in large groups similar to migrating birds.
Zipline over the Bronx River
End-or begin- a fun day at the Bronx Zoo by ziplining over the Bronx River! This experience is fun for the entire family and will give you a birds eye view of the Bronx River.
Visit the Children’s Zoo
You don’t have to drive an hour or more to a farm if you want to visit some cute farm animals! Head to the Children’s Zoo to explore the walk-through trail which leading you through an aviary, to the prairie dogs’ tunnels, along a pond and to the farmyard – where you can pet and feed sheep, alpacas and goats.
