We were in Manitowoc for the day for Al’s class reunion. It wasn’t until evening so we went to Lincoln Park Zoo for a few hours.
Admission is free but donations are gratefully accepted here.
The walk through the zoo was fun, and the animals looked well cared for, many were taking a nap when we were there 🙂
Scattered throughout the grounds are footprints of many animals on concrete squares. Great idea!
The zoo also has a fish hatchery dedicated to Dean H. Heili, a man dedicated to preserving Great Lakes sport fishing. He also invented the diving plane for lures.
In the structure is a monitor linked to an underwater camera so you can see the fish. It also gives water temp. Sorry, it is difficult to photograph.
A beautiful gazebo too.
There also is a platform overlooking a wetland, you might be lucky enough to see a crane or heron here!
A look at some of the other animals here.
We went into the Education and Animal Care building last. In here are reptile exhibits and an aviary.
Also a honeybee home. The Queen is painted white, I tried to find her but couldn’t.
There is also an inner room for classes, etc. Also an exhibit of fish in Lake Michigan.
We enjoyed our visit here, what took us so long? Enjoy the park too.
