“It looks like summer is finally here and we’re celebrating with even more time to enjoy our Seneca Park Zoo!” commented Dinolfo. “On our Family Fun Days, we will be offering fun activities, zookeeper chats, and special animal experiences throughout the day… and night! I encourage everyone to stop by and enjoy all our Zoo has to offer, from entertainment to education to conservation. What a great way to unofficially kick-off and close-out the summer Zoo season!”
