Children now have more of an incentive to get outside and play.
The Binghamton Zoo has created five new Nature Play Stations.
The stations are all nature based and offer a selection of games, crafts, and educational activities involving animals and the environment.
The 5 are Nature Post, Eagle’s Nest, Stream Table, Chalk Art and Nature Loom.
Binghamton Zoo Public Relations Coordinator Rachel Davenport says the stations are a great way to get kids out and involved with the outdoors.
“We’re trying to make the zoo more of a destination. So like I said you’re learning all about the animals from all across the world. We have endangered species, we have native wildlife. Now we have these awesome nature play stations. So it’s a safe environment so parents can watch their kids as they come in and experience the eagle’s nest, the parents can even come in here,” said Davenport.
Davenport says the zoo plans on continuing to add more play stations.
The Binghamton Zoo is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Admission is $8 for adults and $6 for kids ages 3 to 11.
