Zoo says thank you (Dec. 26-31)

December 20, 2009

I enjoy the Saint Louis Zoo much more when it’s really cold than when it’s really hot.  Blame it on my North Dakota upbringing, but I really like the briskness of winter events like Wild Lights (going on now through Dec. 23 and again Dec. 26-30, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.).

This year there’s an extra special event on the zoo’s cold-weather calendar: a celebration of its reaching an all-time high for the number of visitors in a year.  Last week it counted No. 3,065,554, and to thank the public for its enthusiasm (remember, I-64 was closed during this milestone year) and putting up with the hassles, the children’s zoo will have free admission from Dec. 26 to 31. There are also special feeding sessions for some of the animals each day; visit the special Visitor Appreciation Days page on the zoo’s site.
