Gator Caper at GPL Zoo Friday

1 p.m.

Kids ages 9-12 can help solve the case of Garry Gator. In the scenario, the prankster escaped from the swamp exhibit and released five zoo animals and hid them in secret locations. There are riddles to solve to figure out which animals are hidden and where. The staff of the GPL Zoo needs to hurry and find the animals and get them back in their exhibits before it is time to open the zoo. Due to limited space, free tickets will be issued beginning an hour before the program on a first-come, first-served basis. The program is limited to 24 participants.
