zookeeper for a day

DD had the opportunity to participate in the “Zookeeper for a Day” program at the St. Louis Zoo. She had a wonderful time and wants to do it again next summer. The program took place at the Children’s Zoo, where all the kids have fun! The junior zookeepers are paired with a zookeeper for the […]
