We’ve all noticed changes in our lives since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

That’s even true for the animals at Potter Park Zoo in Lansing which saw a spring and summer without the typical crowds of people.

Now that it’s the winter, when typically, most of us would be gathering together, Potter Park’s zookeepers are making sure the animals aren’t left without some holiday cheer.
