white-owlKids and adults visiting the Plymouth Meeting Mall in Pennsylvania can see the wild things at the mall May 11 and June 16. Plymouth Meeting Mall will host two Elmwood Park Zoo animal exhibits, with the zoo’s educational volunteers bringing live animals and artifacts.

The touchable, interactive exhibits will feature a new theme each month and are free and open to the public.

Family Friendly “Winged Wonders” on May 11

“Predators!” at the Mall June 16
From 12–4 p.m., kids can meet the big, bad predators of the wild when the Elmwood Park Zoo’s educational volunteers bring in big cats and other carnivores!
