“Just Take a Walk in the Zoo” Tour

For Black History Month in February, we introduced a self-guided walking tour inspired by Tommy Morrow’s children’s book “Just Take a Walk in the Zoo,” and we’re extending it through the month of March!

A child with curly brown hair looks down and pats wet sand in a metal tin with one hand and holds a silver ladle in the other hand, with two more children crouching down and an adult caregiver sitting nearby.
