Farm’s new chalkboard

Young visitors are invited to draw their favourite DZG animal on the new chalkboard in the farm barn.

The blackboard, on the side of the new barn’s food preparation area, has been receiving much interest since being installed and keepers are enjoying seeing the artwork.

Section Leader, Lesley Lewis, said: “Our animal colouring sheets always go down well with our arty visitors and the chalkboard is proving just as popular, with some lovely pictures left for us see.”

The farm barn is open between 12–12.45pm and 2.15–3.30pm each day, when visitors can get close to a variety of invertebrates and fluffy animals, including rabbits, guinea pigs, cockroaches and stick insects.

And remember all children who come and meet our animals can claim their colourful farm sticker too!
