Let's Hang Out At the Riverside Discovery Center for Visit the Zoo Day

Tomorrow is Visit the Zoo Day, so I thought it would be a great day for a virtual trip to the Scottsbluff, Nebraska, Zoo.  

I think it is important to make two visits to a zoo.  One reason I feel this way is because sometimes the animals are sleeping & not out for viewing.  Also, I have found that many times the animals are not available because the zoo keepers have them out of their enclosures for routine care.  Something else I have noticed as I travel around is there is typically at least one enclosure undergoing maintenance or construction.

The first time I went to the Riverside Discovery Center was in 2018 when I was working there for three months.  I took a lot of pictures during this trip, but at the time I did not think I would be blogging anymore.

When I went back in 2020 during another work assignment I had begun my new blog, so I took a lot more pictures.  I wanted my viewers to feel like they had actually visited the zoo.  Soooo...I took a ton of pictures from every possible view I could think of.  Now you can take a virtual tour of the entire Scottsbluff Zoo anytime you want.

When I went this second time, restrictions were in place because of COVID.  There were not a lot of people there the day I went, but I noticed the people there were being careful to practice precautionary behavior.  I got videos of parts of the zoo too.

The Riverside Discovery Center is not a huge zoo, but they have packed a lot of animals in there.  It is a pretty neat little zoo.  They have classes & other fun events.  Hopefully, you will be able to make a trip to this zoo sometime in the future when things are safe again.  Meanwhile, I hope you enjoyed this virtual trip.
