Reminder: Peanut Free Zone

Howdy Folks, just a friendly reminder that peanut allergies are becoming more and more common. A peanut butter sandwich for you might mean a trip to the hospital for someone near you. So please be mindful of others with nut allergies and leave these types of snacks at home.


Our Children’s Areas are Peanut-Free Zones.

Please wash your hands before entering if you have been in contact with peanut products!

Thank you.

Bats, Bugs, Bananas and Chocolate

the creature show

To continue The Halloween National Bat Month Celebration, see The Creature Show, which is broadcast from New Jersey. The facts are true of Connecticut bats as well as New Jersey bats because the same bat species live in both states. For information about Connecticut’s backyard bat count:

If you have found a bat, or for more information about Connecticut’s bats:

Now here’s something really scary: imagine a world full of mosquitoes and no bananas or chocolate. Bats eat bugs and pollinate plants, including those that produce chocolate.


Enjoy the shows, and be sure to scroll down for more Fun & Facts about Bats.
