One of the mini-humans I know asked to visit Como Zoo this weekend and it seemed like the perfect excuse to spend a day outside in the glorious fall weather. I used to be a bit wary of Como Zoo because it doesn’t have the finding of larger zoos and I was afraid the animals were suffering for it. While I’d still love to see bigger and better habitats, I have seen improvement over the years. And now that I live closer and can visit a bit more often, I am also seeing a HUGE value in having a free/donation based park. The zoo was packed with families yesterday and it was apparent that Como Zoo brings great value to the area.
