A day off from school or work can really help beat the winter blahs, so this Monday (Jan. 21) spend Martin Luther King, Jr. Day at the Zoo! It marks the first of the Zoo’s Free Youth Admission Days in 2013, where you can enjoy one free youth admission with one paid adult admission, effective all day (10 a.m. to 3 p.m.)! Click here to view the remainder of the Zoo’s scheduled Free Youth Admission Days in 2013.
The Zoo is open year round, and many of our animals thrive in cold weather. Polar bears, native to Arctic regions, Amur tigers, indigenous to northeastern Asia; snow leopards in central Asia and North American river otters are just a few of the animals you might see playing in the cold. The Zoo also boasts indoor exhibits where some of our warm-weather species reside. Stop by the E.C.O. Center to see radiated tortoises, enter the Aviary to view the scarlet ibis, or meander through the Main Building to admire the meerkats.
Our Eagle’s Landing Café will be open for hot lunches, warm beverages and snacks, which you can enjoy in the heated Eagle’s Landing Pavilion. Unique gifts and apparel await you at the ZooShop, including the 2013 Seneca Park Zoo calendar which is now only $6.50!
The Zoo’s animals and staff look forward to seeing you here on Monday – you will love your Zoo in wintertime!
