TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Ever since the earliest humans watched birds take wing, flight has been a fascination.

With that in mind, the Toledo Zoo is presenting a special program called "Soar and Explore" this weekend.

Throughout the zoo, there are demonstrations all about the science and fun of flight.

The presentations are also a way of promoting two new exhibits coming to the zoo later this year, one featuring penguins, the other, flamingos.

"We have all types of animal shows, paper airplanes, the Challenger Learning Center, how humans have adapted flight based on animals and adaptations," said the Toledo Zoo's Andi Norman.

'Soar and Explore' continues Sunday at the Toledo Zoo.
