BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) For some, summer doesn’t officially begin until there’s a trip to the zoo. One favorite spot in West Michigan is Binder Park Zoo, where there’s lots of animals to see and things to do. Throughout the summer Binder Park Zoo is holding a number of events so kids and families can learn about animals and conservation efforts.

The Kids FUNfari is Saturday, June 20. Kids can interact with local organizations working to promote fun and healthy alternatives to TV and devices, and help kids get outside. The day starts with the Lemur Lap, a non-competitive race for children 10 and under. You can register online or at the zoo office.

The Cheetah Chase is on Saturday, June 27. It’s one of the most unique 5K events in Michigan. You can run or walk the distance, and you can also register for that online or at the zoo office.
