Submitted by Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium

Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium Mother's Day
All mothers receive half-off admission to Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium this Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 10.

There’s a lot new to see and “zoo” at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, and there’s no better time for a family outing than Saturday, when all mothers will receive half-off general admission.

Half-Price Moms’ Day is a tradition at the zoo, where the live-animal show, “Indiana Bones and the Golden Treasure,” just opened its Summer 2015 run at the Wild Wonders Outdoor Theater.

Shows are at noon and 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

Plus, many of the zoo’s animals will receive special enrichments during the day.

  • 11:00 a.m.  Watch meerkat moms enjoy a “Mother’s Day Brunch” in Kids’ Zone.
  • 12:30 p.m. See Sumatran tiger mom Jaya and her 7-month-old triplets as the girls frolic in piles of ice and enjoy special treats.
  • 3:00 p.m.  Watch harbor seal moms play with feeder puzzles and ice treats in the zoo’s Rocky Shores area.
  • 3:30 p.m. See clouded leopards receive a Mother’s Day-inspired treat.

In addition, the colorful budgies are back, and they’ll fly right up to visitors’ hands to eat the seeds on special sticks that can be purchased for $1 for zoo members or $1.50 for non-members.

And kids can hop aboard a camel for a ride or take a spin on an antique carousel.

It’s a great weekend for quality family time, and Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium is the perfect place to share the day.
