PORTLAND, Ore. – Admission to the Oregon Zoo will be free on Sunday, Nov. 19.
“Periodically, the zoo hosts a free day as a thank you to the community,” said Dr. Don Moore, zoo director. “This is a great time of year to see the animals. We have a full day of activities scheduled, and we hope everyone who comes through the gates on Sunday is inspired to help create a better future for wildlife.”
The zoo will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Because free promotional days are typically busy, zoo officials recommend visitors take the MAX train because parking will be difficult.
