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.

There also is a platform overlooking a wetland, you might be lucky enough to see a crane or heron 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.
