Sadly, the days are getting shorter...but they are also getting cooler and more enjoyable. And Mesker Park Zoo is giving you (literally) more time to enjoy all they have to offer.

The zoo normally closes at 5pm, but they are extending their hours each Thursday, Friday and Saturday in August...staying open until 8pm.

This would be a great time to visit the zoo's new arrivals, like the 11-month-old giraffe, Clementine, or the giant anteater, Mr. Pickles.
