The cold, gray days of January and February might have you wishing for hibernation, but you don’t need to wait until the first signs of spring to have some fun with your cubs at one of southeast Michigan’s most popular outdoor destinations.
The Detroit Zoo is asking its guests to embrace the winter season with a visit to the zoo during Wild Winter Weekends, an annual event featuring a variety of special events.
The popular program will be held on two select weekends this year. Bring the family for a day of fun from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Jan. 16-17 and Feb. 6-7, 2016. Each day will offer festivities for all ages including children’s music, zookeeper talks, crafts and more.
You’ll also get to see what the zoo’s more than 2,500 animals are up to during the winter season as you explore the many indoor and outdoor habitats. Wild Winter Weekends is just one of many annual events at the Detroit Zoo, which recently announced that it broke its attendance record by welcoming 1,476,378 visitors in 2015.
All Wild Winter Weekend activities are included with regular Detroit Zoo admission and no pre-registration is necessary. Zoo admission prices are $14/adults, $10/children 2-14 and seniors 62-plus, and free/children younger than 2. Parking costs $6.
