There are so many new moms at the Zoo! Recently, we’ve had born a yellow-backed duiker, a greater kudu calf, a red-necked wallaby, a Sumatran tiger cub, a group of prairie dog pups, some Magellanic penguin eggs and four San Clemente Island goat kids to name a few. So on May 12, mothers and grandmothers (who are accompanied by their children) receive free admission to the Zoo! Moms also receive a free ride on our historic 1921 Dentzel Carousel. The whole family will enjoy completing a fun scavenger hunt to locate our Zoo moms using hints about animal species, habitat and conservation. Bring your completed scavenger hunt pages to Terrace Café to receive one free small ice-cream cone. We're also having a special Mother's Day BikeAbout for those moms and families interested in a docent-led tour around the Zoo before it opens. Please join us in making all of our moms feel special on Mother’s Day.
