One of the many reasons I like presenting programs on the Wegmans ZooMobile is that it extends the reach of the Zoo. While the Zoo might be on 15.5 acres, our ZooMobile program covers an area of about 8,800 square miles, or an area about the size of New Jersey!
Because of this extended outreach, the ZooMobile is able to visit places and people that might not ordinarily get to visit the Zoo. In 2012, we saw over 20,000 people on ZooMobile programs! While the ZooMobile is known for visiting classrooms, we also visit senior living facilities and participate in community events like the Entercom Kid’s Fest that was held this past weekend.
Make sure to think of us for your next community event, fundraiser, scout meeting, senior recreation program, college community building program or classroom visit. We bring the Zoo to you!
