Everyone’s Zoo Program
Do you work with members of our community who may not be able to afford the price of admission or whose connection to community resources and support will in some way benefit their treatment and care? The goal of the Everyone’s Zoo Program is to provide opportunities for everyone in our community to experience all the educational, interpretive and wonder-inspiring experiences that the Zoo has to offer.
