Come Play the Animal Way! From: Stacey Goldsmith-Nathanson

February 16 – 20, 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Stone Zoo

Beat the humdrum winter routine and come out to Stone Zoo during February school vacation week. Watch wolves, coyotes and others have fun in the cold, and learn about neat animal adaptations to the winter temperatures. Just like you, animals can get bored when they’re cooped up all winter, so we have come up with some neat enrichment activities to keep them happy! Come and see all the creative things we do for our critters, and learn how we keep them active and playing throughout the winter using enrichment techniques.

Please contact Brianne for any questions: 617-375-9700

3rd Stop, The Easton Children's Museum, Easton, MA:

If you're interested in more fun activities over February Vacation, The Easton Children's Museum runs a February Vacation week program, this year themed as Ruff Ruffman's Operation espionage! We'll be searching for Ruff's squeaky toy, which has gone missing. Come check us out!

If you haven't been to this museum, I highly recommend it!!
