Visitors will have to take a day off from the zoo Wednesday as a cleanup effort gets underway.

The Philadelphia Zoo will be closed to the public on March 1 for a campus-wide clean up effort. The project will focus on preparing the gardens as the busy spring and summer seasons approach.

Visitors won’t be barred for long- the zoo will resume their normal business hours (9:30 a.m. - 4 p.m.) on Thursday, March 2.
