The Oregon Zoo will mark Veterans Day by offering free admission for military veterans and active military personnel, as well as family members who accompany them to the zoo. Families of deployed military personnel also will be given free admission.
"We want to show our gratitude to those who have served in the military and to the families that support them," said zoo director Kim Smith. "On Veterans Day, we're inviting them, their families and the families of deployed military personnel to enjoy a free day at the zoo."
To receive free admission Monday, Nov. 12, visitors must show a military or veteran organization ID, discharge papers or other official military identification; families of deployed military personnel must show an active duty ID. The Zoo Store is also offering a 10 percent discount for veterans, active military personnel and their families, with proper identification.
