13 Oct No need to spell it out. We love the St. Louis Zoo!
While walking through the parking lot of the St. Louis Zoo we noticed that each section had a sign featuring a letter and corresponding animal to help people remember where they parked. For fun we took pictures of all the letters in the words HERMANN LONDON and made this cool collage. Can you guess what animal the zoo used for all the other letters of the alphabet?
BRIEF HISTORY OF THE ST. LOUIS ZOO
The Smithsonian Institution constructed a walk-through bird cage for the World’s Fair in 1904. Ten days after the fair closed, the citizens of St. Louis bought the cage for $3,500 instead of letting it get shipped back to Washington, D.C. This was the first piece of what would become the Saint Louis Zoo which was established in 1910. The Saint Louis Zoological Park in Forest Park, St. Louis, Missouri is recognized as a leading zoo in animal management, research, conservation, and education. The zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). Admission is free based on a public subsidy from a cultural tax district, the Metropolitan Zoological Park and Museum District (ZMD). In 2017 and 2018, the zoo was chosen by USA Today as the best in the United States.
