Review for Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens, Lake Monroe, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been doing special programs with the Central Florida Zoo for over 20 yrs. As a health educator and nurse, I worked with Zoo Walkers and mini health fairs and other such activities . As a lover of animals and a cheerleader for how great this little zoo is, I have gone out over the last 8 years and helped with the big events for children like Hip-pity Hop-pity and Zoo Boo nights . Children combine the fun of the holidays with learning about animals and nature. One of the most fun adult events is Zoo Brews Festival. Some years I've been a patroon other years a volunteer. No matter what role I am in, it is fun. It is one of the biggest evening events that really gets folks socializing around the conversations of animals, habitats, environmental efforts, and just staying aware of survival. They stay so active with all parts of the surrounding community. I have plenty of young scout friends that have camped out at the zoo or done night tours. We are so fortunate to have such a well run and forward thinking zoo.
