Thanks to funding from Energize ConnecticutSM, an initiative dedicated to empowering Connecticut citizens to make smart energy choices, Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo and Stepping Stones Museum for Children are teaming up to bring an exciting educational experience to Connecticut's only zoo's this summer. A temporary addition to the zoo's educational offerings, the museum's Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo and Stepping Stones Museum for Children invite visitors to take a fun, interactive journey through the Conservation QuestMaze. The maze teaches children and families valuable lessons about energy - what it is, where it comes from, how it's used, and why it's so important to use it wisely. The 2,200-square-foot, visually spectacular maze, which is located near the carousel, provides facts and challenges visitors to take responsibility by using less energy. Only by making good choices can visitors find their way out of the maze. They also are encouraged to make personal commitments to conserve energy, protect the planet, and promote healthy living. Enjoying the maze is included in the price of zoo admission. Through September 1, 2014.
