This New Year, resolve to have more adventures and experiences!

Make your 2017 truly WILD at Reid Park Zoo – a perfect escape from the ordinary. Reconnect to nature when you interact with your favorite Zoo friends and jump-start your New Year’s resolution list with a few of these ideas:
Did you know one of your Zoo membership benefits is getting FREE admission to Reid Park Zoo year round? With more than 320 days of sunshine, there’s so much to explore at the Zoo! Take flight (or pretend to) in the free-flight aviary, or visit our family herd of elephants. Also, did we mention its free with your membership to come visit all your Zoo friends?
Get Up Close and Personal
 Nothing gets you closer than Reid Park Zoo! The Zoo is full of interactive opportunities for you to reconnect to wildlife and get up-close and personal to your favorite Zoo animals! Come to a giraffe feeding and watch Denver, Elinor and Jasiri take one of their favorite foods – carrots! – right out of your hands. Members get a free giraffe feeding when they sign up or renew – AND two, single-use admit one coupons, so you can bring friends to share the experience!
