Mother's Day is May 13

All species of moms work hard, whether they're feeding a nest of chicks, keeping joeys warm in their pouches or helping kids with their homework. Give your mom the day off, and visit the Zoo on Mother's Day, as all mothers receive free admission. See trumpeter swan cygnet Zak swimming on Lake Evinrude with Mom Victoria. Also, stop by the Florence Mila Borchert Big Cat Country to see how much our lion cubs have grown since their birth last July to Mom Sanura.

Party for the Planet

Come celebrate all things "green" during this special weekend commemorating Earth Day. On Saturday, you can recycle more than 100 items, from car batteries to lawnmowers! All funds will keep up green practices at the Zoo!

Brew Crew and the Milwaukee Zoo

With spring training in full "swing," baseball season is almost upon us! During the 2012 season, Zoo fans and baseball fans can enjoy both of these popular pastimes for a special reduced rate through the "Brew Crew & the Zoo Ticket Package."
