February Fun at Beardsley Zoo

There is a new big cat exhibit at the Beardsley Zoo this winter. Petya, an 8 year old Amur Tiger recently joined the Zoo from the Indianapolis Zoo. Amur tigers are an endangered species, and we participate in the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ Species Survival Program for these animals. Petya joins Naka, the Beardsley Zoo’s 9-year-old female Amur tiger. It is refreshing and fun to watch Petya play in the snow.

On February 14 in honor of Valentine’s Day, the Beardsley Zoo is offering a 15% discount on admission to everyone that is wearing red, a sweet deal indeed.

The annual Asian New Year Festival is taking place at the Zoo at 12 noon on February 21. Come and celebrate the Year of the Sheep and check out the Zoo’s goats while you are visiting! There will be special stories, crafts, a children’s parade and many more fun activities. The snow date is Feb. 28.
