Everyone has a green tradition for St. Patrick's Day, whether it's dressing up for the parade or breaking out the food coloring for your favorite food or beverage.
At the Zoo we make every day green by doing our best to �Reduce, Reuse and Recycle� and on St. Patrick's Day our tradition is to encourage our guests to help us! Bring an old cell phone to the Box Office on Saturday, March 17 and receive one free admission to the Zoo and RainForest (offer valid that day only).
And in keeping with the green theme of the day, anyone wearing green on St. Patrick's Day will receive $2 off admission to the Zoo, making tickets just $6 per person, $3 for children ages 2-11 and free for children younger than 2 and Zoo members. All you have to do is wear at least one piece of visible clothing that's green.
Phones donated during the Zoo's St. Patrick's Day event will either be refurbished and reused or recycled by an EPA approved recycler. The Zoo has collected nearly 4,000 phones since the recycling program began in 2005. Proceeds from the event benefit the Zoo's conservation and recycling programs.
Northeast Ohio's most-visited year-round attraction, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Through March 31, 2012, admission is discounted to $8 per person, $5 for kids ages 2 to 11 and is free for children younger than 2 and Zoo members. Parking is free. Located at 3900 Wildlife Way, the Zoo is easily accessible from Interstates 71, 90 and 480.
