This Contest is now closed. Congratulations Elizabeth Stine! I’m (wildly) excited about John Ball Zoo and Frederik Meijer Gardens pairing up once again to bring Grand Rapids Animal Adventures: Growing Up Wild! My family missed out on this event last year (sigh) but this year we’re going. My kids will love the chance to get up close with some amazing animals and even pet them. Not to mention, their adventurous side will love exploring the conservatory by flashlight. What a perfect way to spend a winter night!
