Zoo plans family night & fundraiser

Thompson Park Zoo

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - The New York State Zoo at Thompson Park is starting what it hopes will become a wintertime tradition.

Executive director Larry Sorel brought Teddi the hedgehog with him to talk about a family night at the zoo called Winter Nights.

Watch his and Teddi's interview in the video.

Winter Nights is from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 19.

It’s complete with a fire pit and s’mores. It’s the regular zoo admission price.

The zoo is also starting up Angels for Animals, a fundraiser to support caring for the animals.
