The Zoo is also extending this offer to active and retired members of the military and the healthcare workers who have been working so hard to keep our community healthy and safe.

The Hometown Heroes event first started as a way to thank firefighters, police officers, and first responders during the week of 9/11. This year, it spans the entire month of September.

In 2020, we are especially thankful for these hometown heroes who are putting their lives on the line during this public health crisis to keep us safe.
