Mother's Day at the ZooMoms get free admission (no coupon necessary). Parking fee still applies. Zoo Pass members get free admission every day with photo ID.

What's a great way to show Mom how much we care? Treating her to a day at the Zoo is a good start. All mothers get into the Zoo for free on their special day. Roots Salon is adding some sparkle to the day by offering free glitter hairspray for kids and Mom. Then, spin the wheel to win amazing prizes or enter for a chance to win one of four $100 Roots Salon gift cards. Take a walk around the Zoo as some animals enjoy the outdoors and others enjoy their mothers. Grizzly bear Ronnie and her three adult sons, Chinook, Bozeman and Brian, will be spending the day together. Giraffe mother Ziggy and son Kazi are always a hit with the guests. Then, go inside the primate building for a special event called M.O.M. (Missing Orangutan Mothers). Activities are designed to raise awareness of the devastating effects of non-sustainable palm oil production on the orangutan's rainforest habitat and how we can help conserve the species in the wild.

Special Offer: Get a FREE CAROUSEL RIDE on Mother’s Day with a receipt showing the purchase of any Roots Salon service. Present receipt at Carousel ticket booth. Offer valid May 13, 2018 only.
