Lions, Tigers and PAL, Oh My!

More than 250 PAL youngsters enjoyed the day at the Philadelphia Zoo on June 20, 2012, compliments of PECO and PAL Board member, Michael Innocenzo. This trip has been a favored learning experience for PAL officers and members for more than a decade.

Participants received special gifts from PECO including binoculars, magnifying glasses and brightly colored t-shirts. They enjoyed a great lunch with volunteers from PECO in the zoo’s Peacock Pavilion, where many attendees had their faces painted. A lucky bunch even won animal-themed raffle prizes. Zoo keepers astounded the youngsters with a special exhibit. They were able to feel real leopard fur, snake skin and turtle shell. They also met a 44-year-old tortoise and a friendly garden snake.

Everyone enjoyed all that the Philadelphia Zoo has to offer, including Trail of the Lorax, Big Cat Falls, polar bears and much more. PAL thanks PECO and Michael Innocenzo for another great PECO PAL Day at the Zoo!
