Annual Thanksgiving at the Zoo
November 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Thursday, November 22 @ 10 AM
COA Thanksgiving Zoo Walk
Cleveland Metroparks Zoo
3900 Wildlife Way
Cleveland, OH 44109
In recognition that not everyone will be going over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house for Thanksgiving, we’re planning a fun morning at the zoo. If you aren’t doing the cooking, get out of the way and join us before feast and football.
Admission is free to both the zoo and the rain forest on Thanksgiving and there will be special Turkey Day animal feeding/ activities to enjoy. We’ll try to walk as a group, but each person’s activities will be dictated by his or her own schedule. We’ll meet at 10:00 but you can stay as long as you wish. Rain or shine–the rain forest will be toasty warm even on the worst of days.
Meet at 10:00 a.m. at the main entrance to the education building (roughly opposite the ticket booths). If you have problems locating the group you may call 440-319-0815 that morning.
