You don’t have to hibernate over the holidays this year if you get out and get moving in Delaware’s state parks. From “First Day Hikes,” to “Zoo Camp,” to “Stroller Rollers,” there is plenty to do and see in DNREC’s state parks over the winter break from Christmas Eve through New Year’s Day.
Brandywine Zoo has made a red panda transfer and introduced two new pandas to the public. The zoo’s new residents are Sherman, a five-year-old male from the Smithsonian Conservation Biology institute in Virginia, and a four-year-old female, named Mohu, from the Blank Park Zoo in Iowa.
