Senior Celebration at Reid Park Zoo

March 8, 2024 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


Guests ages 62 and greater will receive $5 admission at the gate during Reid Park Zoo's annual Senior Celebration!

Spend a relaxing day outdoors at the Zoo. Enjoy free sampling of bird-friendly coffee from Wood Warblers coffee (while supplies last), then pick up a bag for home in the Zoo Gift Shop. Learn how to protect habitats for wild birds and spend some time with the Zoo’s avian residents in the two aviaries. Meet ambassador animals up-close, and don’t forget to join in on zoo keeper habitat chats and animal enrichment demonstrations throughout the day to see how the Zoo cares for animals of all ages. Meet Gwen, the new two-toed sloth and Moyo, the adorable new giraffe calf, whom you may see out on habitat with mom Penny.

Interested in desert-friendly gardening and plants? Nicci Radhe of Horny Toad Horticulture will be sharing her knowledge of gardening and giving out succulents, cuttings, and seeds. Horny Toad Horticulture grows 100% organically and promotes gardening without use of pesticides or synthetic fertilizers, focusing on building soil and vermiculture composting.

At noon, wander over to the Event Garden for a concert by Arizona Opera, who will be performing songs from popular operas — including some with animal themes.
