We’re halfway through 2020. This week I’m taking some time off from the blog to work on some other projects. The rest of this week I’m going to re-run some of the most popular posts and videos of the year so far.
Back in March I my sister, who lives near Cincinnati, shared a Facebook post with me about the Cincinnati Zoo’s daily virtual zoo visits. I thought it was a neat thing that my kids would like too. I wrote a short blog post about it to share with those of you who have kids at home. I didn’t expect it to be a popular post. It has turned out to be the single most popular post I’ve written all year. Here it is for those who missed it the first time around.
Yes, the zoo is still holding these virtual visits. I get Facebook notifications about them everyday.
The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is closed to the public right now and thousands (millions?) of kids are home from school right now too. That’s why the zoo has announced that they’re hosting daily “Home Safaris” beginning today at 3pm ET. These Home Safaris will be broadcast live on Facebook. Each Home Safari will feature a different animal and a related at-home activity. Be sure to follow the zoo’s Facebook page to be notified when the Home Safaris begin.
