While some of the City of Boise's most fun facilities are listed as closed through at least September 2021, Zoo Boise's been safely operating for months!

The COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging for Zoo Boise. Last year, they were forced to cancel some of their signature events like their Mother's Day Brunch and Snooze at the Zoo. Other events like Run Wild and Zoobilee they were able to make virtual. I was lucky enough to be part of the packet pick-up for Run Wild and the zoo staff really went the extra mile to make it special for the kids. They called in the Treasure Valley Avengers to bring some of their super hero characters our and the 501st and Rebel Legions to surprise kids with Star Wars characters. They were also able to break up the popular Boo at the Zoo event into several Zoo at Night events in October.

The community support to Zoo at Night and daily COVID conscious visits to the zoo has been great. That's why they want to say thank you to the Treasure Valley for their continued support by discounting admission to $2 every Tuesday in February!

As part of their safety precautions, buying your tickets in advance is a must as the zoo is running on limited timed entry. You can purchase tickets for the day of your desired visit up to seven days in advance by clicking HERE. 

If you really enjoy your $2 trip to the zoo and want to show your gratitude, Zoo Boise is currently running a fundraising campaign to fill the gap where they lost valuable donation dollars due to canceled events. They've set a goal of raising $60,000 to ensure that they can continue education programs, support zoo chefs, provide amazing experiences for Treasure Valley families and so much more. If you are able and willing to donate to that effort, both the keepers and animals would be so grateful for your support! You can donate to Zoo Boise by clicking HERE.
