Dads Get in Free at the Birmingham Zoo in Honor of Father’s Day

Jun 06, 2013 01:27PM, Published by Kitty, Categories: Family, Today



In recognition of Father’s Day, dads get in free at the Birmingham Zoo on Sunday, June 16th with the purchase of their child’s full-price admission (one redemption per paid admission). During the event, dads can learn about native snakes and reptiles of Alabama through an educational demonstration that features live animals. Guests will also have the opportunity to meet the keepers and learn about all the reptiles at the Zoo from 10am to 2pm in the Reptile Building.
 
Visitors are invited to explore the Zoo’s newest exhibit, Dino Discovery presented by Wells Fargo. This limited-time exhibit gives guests the opportunity to hear dinosaurs roar, see them move and take in a pre-historic experience. Dino Discovery takes guests on an expedition down a trail filled with magnificent creatures that once roamed the earth over 160 million years ago. Visit the Red Diamond Sea Lion Splash Show, which features an even closer look at this aquatic species and showcases new behaviors from the Zoo’s California sea lions like back flips, high jumps and a balancing act. The Wildlife Show, another guest favorite, is an exciting and educational narrated presentation of a variety of animals trained to exhibit their natural behaviors.
 
Other activities include feeding the giraffes at the Kiwanis Giraffe Encounter, learning about the African bull elephants during the Boma Encounter, getting up close and personal with African lions at Predator Zone, feeding the lorikeets, enjoying Granny’s Butterfly Garden, cooling off in the Splash Pads, participating in a pelican feeding and much more.
