Mother’s Day at the Zoo
May 12, 2013, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
Moms get free admission (parking not included), no coupon necessary.
Make Mother's Day extra special this year by bringing Mom to the Milwaukee County Zoo. Introduce her to one of the Zoo's most famous new moms: Stella the jaguar. On Nov. 13, 2012,
Stella gave birth to two male cubs. The cubs' dad is Pat, a wild-caught jaguar who brings fresh genes to the world of zoo genetics—making the cubs very special. When the cubs get too rowdy, which is often, she uses a certain vocalization that zookeepers believe roughly translates to "Settle down!"—and they do.
Other moms to visit include Amba, an Amur tiger, and her two offspring, as well as Kiama, a Matschie's tree-kangaroo, and her joey. So be good, listen to your mom and bring her to the Zoo on Mother's Day to show how much you care.
Free Zoo admission for Zoological Society members with ID. The Milwaukee County parking fee is $12. For information, call (414) 771-3040.
