MR. HERSHEY'S ZOO

PROGRAM FOR CHILDREN

A 4-day session starting on [Date} [Time]

The ZooAmerica we know today had its beginnings 119 years ago, when it was called the Hershey Zoo. In 1905, Franz Zinner, the original zookeeper of Hershey Zoo, gave Milton S. Hershey 12 prairie dogs that would form the foundation of the future zoo. A few years later, bears, birds, deer, and exotic animals such as lions, leopards, monkeys, and exotic birds were added.

The Hershey History Center celebrates that long history this summer with a hands-on children’s program presented by Lori Mitchell.
