A Listing for Summer Visits


(editor's note: as we head toward the end of summer, it's always good to find a frugal family outing. After all, "Mom, I'm bored" is the most frequently heard phrase in the month of August. Carol Flynn from Oklahoma was good enough to send this list to us. Most zoos are relatively inexpensive and full of information and entertainment. If you're a member of one zoological society you may find that you can gain free entry to another through exchange privileges. Happy animal watching!)
