Rosamond Gifford Zoo

It would be great if Dryden (or even Tompkins County) had a zoo, but given our size and resources, that's not a campaign promise I'm willing to make. Instead, we've taken Sungiva a couple of times to the Rosamond Gifford Zoo up in Syracuse. We took her on her first birthday, when she was a little young to understand it all, and again last week.

There is much much more there, and I encourage folks to visit. I especially like that they've largely chosen animals that fit our climate for their outdoor exhibits, and all of them are fun to watch. To provide a bit more idea of what's there, I've posted a gallery of zoo photos.
