GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) Summertime is the perfect time of year to see what’s new at John Ball Zoo. Gather the kids together for one of their great educational programs. They feature live animal demonstrations where kids can see and sometimes touch the animal, learn how it lives in the wild, and differences between animals. The education programs enhance what students learn in the classroom.
You can check out everything the zoo has to offer during Save for Education Day. On Thursday, May 29, you can get admission to the zoo for $5.29. It’s a nod to the 529 college savings plan. The event is sponsored by Edward Jones. The special admission price is available from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
An exciting exhibit is about to open at John Ball Zoo! Crawford Tigers of the Realm is made up of two males who are brothers, and a female tiger. The large habitat allows them to roam freely among a forested area. It opens to the public on June 14.
