Celebrate Mother's Day with Mom & Me

Posted by: Rebecca Whitham, Editor

At Woodland Park Zoo, Mother's Day is a chance to celebrate moms of all species!

Join us for the 25th annual Mom & Me at the Zoo, Sat., May 9, 2015, 9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Moms receive half-price admission to the zoo on the day of the event (discount not available online). You'll find activities for the whole family out on the North Meadow including live entertainment, arts and crafts, and play areas.

Then catch keeper talks to learn more about how moms of the animal kingdom provide care for their little ones.

These days there's one Woodland Park Zoo mom working triple time to care for her cubs—lion mama Adia. With her mate, Xerxes, by her side, Adia keeps watch over her three 7-month-old sons. They rough around and wrestle, and are learning through play how their claws and teeth work. Through it all, mom provides guidance, shows supreme tolerance, and gives them a little check now and then when they need some discipline.

It's a joy to share time with this beautiful family. If these moms and their wild ones remind you of your mom or your wild ones, use one of our free Mother's Day e-cards to share your Mother's Day love!
