The June 2012 flooding caused much devastation in the Twin Ports.  One public area that sustained both damage and attention was the Lake Superior Zoo - specifically the barnyard exhibit.

Plenty of hard work to restore the popular exhibit followed and now the end result will be on display for everyone to see as the Lake Superior Zoo celebrates a fun day "on the farm".

Celebrate the dedication of the zoo’s newly renovated barnyard and meet their many new farm animal friends.  Don’t forget your camera!  The kids will be getting an up close and personal introduction to the zoo’s llama, sheep, donkey, goats and more. The event happens Saturday, June 8th - starting at 10:30AM.

In addition  this event will also celebrate farming and locally-grown food.

In addition to the "twine-cutting event", the Zoo has a full slate of activities planned throughout the day.

Upper Lakes Foods will also be on hand and Thousand Hills Farms will provide free all-beef hot dogs - while they last - starting at 11AM.
