You can experience nature—and exotic animals—without leaving the city when you participate in the Zoological Society of Milwaukee’s annual Snooze at the Zoo campout, sponsored by Old Orchard Brands and Sentry Foods. Pitch a tent at the Milwaukee County Zoo on the two remaining nights available—Aug. 8 or 9—and listen to animals that stir in the night. Space is limited; so register now at www.zoosociety.org/snooze.
