 I got the opportunity to return to the Beardsley Zoo with some good friends this week. I had not been there since 2013. There have been many terrific changes to the facility. The zoo is located in a park designed by Frederick Law Olmstead (who also designed our NY’s Central Park and Prospect Park). It is Connecticut’s only AZA accredited zoo. If you get a chance, I highly recommend a visit. The bottom photo of a snow monkey with a pumpkin is not from the Beardsley Zoo but is an oldie but goodie from one of my photo sessions at the Central Park Zoo. We are holding our first photo session since COVID on Halloween day. Click here to sign up for some pumpkin fun.

Maned WolfI haven’t been to Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo in a number of years.  Our mid-week visit was a snowy winter wonderland.  The walkabout included red wolves, maned wolf, bison, red foxes, bald eagles, pronghorn, playful river otters, tigers and more. Inside the warm tropic zone you’ll see pygmy marmosets, black and gold howler monkeys, agoutis, toucan, scarlet ibis, ocelot and much more. Take the day trip – you’ll have fun.
