The second-annual event will run from 9 a.m. – noon and includes Breakfast in Mrs. Claus’s Parlor (by reservation), Christmas train rides, a children’s craft and a meet-and-greet with Old Saint Nick.


Winter Zoo Edventures


Are your kids going stir crazy with cabin fever during winter break? Then how about signing them up for the Lee Richardson Zoo’s Winter Edventures!  This year the Zoo will be offering two camps for students in grades 1st – 5th, one December 22nd and 23rd and a second on December 29th and 30th.  Both camps go from 9:00am – 3:00pm and include a snack, but campers need to bring a sack lunch.  The first edventure will focus on the animals and people who live in the Arctic, and the other edventure will have campers dreaming of summer sun and desert sand as they learn about desert animals.  We will be spending time outdoors each day so dress appropriately!  Each camp includes crafts, games, and of course special close-ups with our Zoo animals.  Contact the Zoo at (620) 276-1250 or e-mail zoo.education@gardencityks.us for more details!
