SPRING HAS ARRIVED AT THE CHERRY BROOK ZOO

Yes, it's that time of year again when the sun is out, things have warmed up, buds are showing on the trees and for zoo staff it is spring cleaning time. Each and every animal enclosure is on the list to be given their spring cleaning. It is also time to have our list of physical plant needs that show what needs repair, repainting or just replacing. Our volunteer maintenance group is out here as well helping us to make sure everything is taken care of. Not to leave out our volunteer gardeners and birthday party hosts and tour guides along with our Animal Enrichment Group who work with some of the animals; and on the list goes from special events to the many outside events like the Amazatorium being held this Saturday at  HARBOUR STATION, New Brunswick's largest leaning maze Show 1 at  10:00 AM – 1:00 PM  - Show 2 at 2:30 PM – 600:PM.

The Vanished Kingdom Park and the Tiger Claws 18 Hole Miniature Golf Course will be open on May 1st.

Yes we are scrubbing down the zoo and have lots to do so if you are interested in becoming a Volunteerfor the Cherry Brook Zoo we just happen to be having a Volunteer Recruitment on April 26 at 6:00 PM and again on Sunday  April 29th at 1:00 PM.
