We fueled up for the scavenger hunt with small bites from the Zoo, as well as beers from Great Lakes Brewing Co., as we studied Zoo maps and planned our route to victory.
Throughout the hunt, we learned more about the Zoo, its mission, and its residents; walked (or ran – go, Scott, go) a lot; and took a ton of silly photos.
The scavenger hunt is put on by the Ambassadors Circle Young Professional Group, which combines the benefits of Cleveland Zoological Society membership with opportunities for volunteering, networking, and leadership.
Membership in Ambassadors Circle is $120, which includes a full-access Zoo membership, as well as invites to events such as the signature scavenger hunt and FUNdraisers like a World Giraffe Day event at Platform Beer Co. and charity brunch at Lago.
Ambassadors Circle helps connect young professionals to the Zoo and shows them that it’s not just a great place for kids to play and learn, but also for adults to enjoy. The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo has an important role in the fabric of Cleveland, setting standards in animal care and welfare, acting as a hub of research for graduate students from Case, Otterbein and other local colleges, providing educational support for over 100,000 local schoolchildren, and working with partners around the globe to help secure a future for endangered species.
