If you haven’t been to the Oregon Zoo, I’ll be the first to tell you this place is awesome. And on Sunday, November 19, the Oregon Zoo is offering FREE admission to all visitors!

Periodically, the zoo hosts a free day as a thank you to the community,” said Dr. Don Moore, zoo director. “This is a great time of year to see the animals. We have a full day of activities scheduled, and we hope everyone who comes through the gates on Sunday is inspired to help create a better future for wildlife.”

The Oregon Zoo opens their doors at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, and closes at 4 p.m.

The day will be full of activities for visitors to enjoy. Activities taking place include:

  • 10:45 a.m. – river otter activities
  • 10:30 a.m. – crocodile feeding at African Rainforest
  • 11 a.m. – condor keeper talk
  • 11:30 a.m. – sea otter feeding
  • 12:30 p.m. – elephant activities at Forest Hall
  • 12:45 p.m. – chimpanzee feeding
  • 1 p.m. – reptile encounter at Family Farm
  • 2 p.m. – orangutan feeding
  • 2:15 p.m. – porcupine feeding
  • 2:30 p.m. – penguin feeding
  • 3 p.m. – bat feeding

“Community free days are typically busy ones for the zoo,” Dr. Moore said. “One tip for making your visit more enjoyable is to ride MAX to the zoo. You avoid traffic, don’t have to worry about parking — and the Washington Park stop lets you off just steps from the zoo entrance.”

Catch a ride at the Sunset Transit Center park-and-ride-lot, which is just one MAX stop from the zoo. Free parking is also available here. For TriMet fare and route information, call 503-238-RIDE (7433), or visit trimet.org.
