CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE — The Cape May County Zoological Society hopes new attractions that operate on donations will lead to more exhibits down the line.
This weekend, a train for children will start operating and collecting $2 apiece in suggested donations.
Bill MacQueen, executive director of the society, said the nonprofit zoological society wants to use subsequent donations and corporate sponsorships to fund more improvements to the zoo.
In a year's time, MacQueen said, he expects the ride to raise $100,000.
On June 29, officials cut the ribbon on an electric train capable of transporting 18 children on an eight-minute ride through the grounds, although the train won't start operating until this weekend."
