— Weekend visitors to the North Carolina Zoo can see how animals beat the heat while enjoying a machine-made blizzard.

Keeping cool is the theme of "Meet the Keeper" talks to be held Saturday and Sunday, beginning at 10 a.m. each day. Watch as animals indulge in icy treats, enjoy music in the zoo’s Junction Plaza, and experience the snow created by machines at the park's North America entrance.
