I’ve got three months before college starts back up and two weeks before my summer job begins. Until I start work, I’m like the thousands of other college students home for the summer; bored and broke.
Having the wonderful Bronx Zoo at my fingertips sounded like a perfect way to spend a day, but the high price of admissions made me think otherwise. Bummed about the cost of the Bronx Zoo, I discovered the Town of Brookhaven Ecology Site, Park & Animal Preserve in Holtsville NY. Not only does this place save animals, it saved me money too. Double whammy!
The Ecology Site, Park & Animal Preserve is totally free and totally fun. It’s pretty much a glorified petting zoo for injured animals — Llamas, alpacas, chickens, goats, birds, and bobcats, are only some of the animals you can go see. It is a great way to enjoy your day, especially when you’re home from college, broke and have nothing else to do!
