Henry Doorly Zoo- Omaha, Nebraska

DSC_0095

August 3, 2014-  My sisters and I decided not to go to a  5hr drive to Valentine, Nebraska- to see the Snake and Smith Waterfall. We got a little lazy. So instead, we decided to go the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo-  It was the first time in a couple of years since we went to the zoo. And a lot of things have change. The Henry Doorly Zoo WILL be expanding in the next couple of years. Which I’m super duper excited to see what new animals will come.

Here are some pictures that I took around the Zoo. And if ANYONE  is in Nebraska. Come and check out the Omaha HenryDoorly Zoo. 😀


Here’s a little bit of information about the zoo-  “Nebraska’s number one paid attendance attraction, the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha is home to about 17,000 animals of 962 species. It encompasses over 130 acres (53 ha) of land area. Although there are bigger zoos in terms of acreage or species numbers, none rank as high as the Henry Doorly Zoo if both these categories are combined. For this reason it is listed here as the largest zoo in the world. It also features the largest cat complex in North America, the world’s largest indoor swamp, the world’s largest indoor desert, as well as the largest glazed geodesic dome in the world”. – See more at: Touropia

Hi everyone name is Cecilia and, I'm 24 years old. I'm passionate about plants and gardening. At the age of 16, I was bitten by the gardening bugs, thanks to my grandma and my sweet lovable mama. I plan to share my hopes, dreams, fears, and daily happenings in my life. When the days are nice. I enjoy going on road trips and especially go on hikes. I'm just recently graduate from college and I was able to get my degree in Horticulture- Small Market Farming. Now I'm working on getting my IT innovation Degree at UNOmaha. My dream is to one day possess my own land out in the country, but near the city. Where I can be surrounded by peace and filled with inspiration with a little mix of technology.
