Active and retired military personnel and their families to be admitted free July 4

On Thursday, July 4, the Oregon Zoo will mark Independence Day by offering free admission for military veterans, active military personnel and first responders (active police, firefighters and EMTs), as well as up to four family members who accompany them. Families of deployed military personnel also will be given free admission.

"We're grateful to everyone who has served our country and the families who support them," said Dr. Don Moore, zoo director.

To receive free admission July 4, guests must show a military or veteran organization ID, discharge papers or other official identification; families of deployed military personnel must show an active duty ID.
