Memorial Day at the zoo takes place May 28, presented by the Walmart Foundation
On Monday, May 28, the Oregon Zoo will welcome military veterans and their families, active military personnel and their families, and families of deployed military personnel into the zoo free of charge, thanks to the Walmart Foundation, which is using the holiday as a way to show its support for those who have served.
Walmart representatives will be at the zoo on the day greeting families and recognizing their service. Visitors can also learn about Walmart’s veterans hiring program and $20 million commitment to support job training, education and innovative public/private community-based initiatives that address challenges many veterans face when returning to civilian life.
The zoo store will also be offering a 10 percent discount and all zoo restaurants will be offering a 25 percent discount to veterans, active military personnel and their families, with proper ID.
To receive free admission Memorial Day, 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.
