We’re mad about monkeys (and apes!) here at Southwick’s Zoo! We have many different species of monkeys and apes here at the zoo, so on June 1st we’re going to have a special primate themed day. Mad About Monkeys Day is day long and is regular zoo admission. EARTH Ltd’s docents will have activity tables set up through out the zoo. Our primate keepers will also be assisting with scheduled events. This is a day long event and is included with the price of general admission. If you love primates, you’d have to be bananas to not visit the zoo this day!
