Let mom explore and enjoy all the wild wonders at the Toledo Zoo this Mother’s Day. All moms receive free Zoo admission when accompanied by at least one child on Sunday, May 12. 

In addition to mom’s free admission, the entire family will enjoy a whole zoo’s worth of fun, including touching rays and other sea creatures in the Aquarium, listening to the unique songs of birds from across the globe in the award-winning Aviary and enjoying the swinging acrobatics of our primates. Don’t forget to stop by and celebrate with our animal moms: Yaz, the orangutan, Kitani, the gorilla and Renee, the African elephant.

 An optional add on to your all-about-mom-day is the Zoo’s full-service Mother’s Day Brunch! This scrumptious meal is prepared by the Zoo’s award-winning catering staff and served buffet-style in the Malawi Event Center. Seating times, pricing, registration and all the delicious menu details are available at toledozoo.org/mothersday or by calling 419-385-5721 ext. 6001. Seating for this bountiful brunch is limited and advanced reservations are required. Zoo member discounts apply.

This Mother’s Day the Zoo is also celebrating in support of M.O.M., Missing Orangutan Mothers, an orangutan outreach organization. Each year more and more orangutans (including moms and babies) are killed or left homeless as their native rainforest habitat is cleared for palm oil plantations. To help raise awareness for the protection of these amazing creatures, orangutan keepers and staff will be on hand to educate visitors about the threats and how our small actions can make a big difference for Yaz and Wakil’s wild counterparts.

Make your mom feel extra special at the Toledo Zoo this Mother’s Day!
