Let mom explore and enjoy
all the wild wonders at the Toledo Zoo this Mother’s
Day. All moms receive free Zoo admission when accompanied by
at least one child on Sunday, May 12, 2019 [Note that in
México, the date is always May 10th].
In addition to mom’s free
admission, the entire family will enjoy a whole zoo’s worth of
fun, including touching rays and other sea creatures in the
Aquarium, listening to the unique songs of birds from across the
globe in the award-winning Aviary and enjoying the swinging
acrobatics of our primates.
Don’t forget to stop by
and celebrate with our animal moms: Yaz, the orangutan,
Kitani, the gorilla, and Renee, the African
An optional add-on to your
all-about-mom-day is the Zoo’s full-service Mother’s Day Brunch,
prepared by the Zoo’s award-winning catering staff and served
buffet-style in the Malawi Event Center. Seating times, pricing,
registration and menu details are available at toledozoo.org/mothersday
or by calling 419-385-5721 ext. 6001. Seating for this bountiful
brunch is limited and advanced reservations are required. Zoo
member discounts apply.
This Mother’s Day the Zoo
is also celebrating in support of M.O.M., Missing Orangutan
Mothers, an orangutan outreach organization. Each year, more
orangutans (including moms and babies) are killed or left
homeless as their native rainforest habitat is cleared for palm
oil plantations. To help raise awareness for their protection,
orangutan keepers and staff will be on hand to educate visitors
about the threats and how our small actions can make a big
difference for Yaz and Wakil’s wild counterparts.
