Leaping at the zoo?

February 28, 2004

Albany -- Sunday maybe the official celebration of the Leap Year but the party started a day earlier at the Parks at Chehaw.  Saturday  the park held its "By Leaps and Bounds Bash." The day featured leaping games and art projects for kids and they also learned about animals they many not usually think of as leapers.

"I learned that reptiles can jump and I really didn't know that. I also learned that a couple of birds from Australia could jump and I also did not know that,"says five year old Emily Auschwitz.

 Leap Day is February 29th and only comes around every 4 years.
