Zoo keepers at the Palm Beach Zoo are making sure their wild charges experience a Happy Fourth of July along with the rest of the community. Staff members have been tirelessly creating Independence Day-themed enrichment items to present to the American black bears (9 a.m.) and jaguars (9:30 a.m.) at the Zoo on Thursday, July 4th. This weekend is also about giving back, the Zoo is once again opening its doors to U.S. military personnel who selflessly serve our Country. The Palm Beach Zoo will be offering all active duty, reserve and retired U.S. military personnel free admission for themselves and up to three guests this Independence Day Weekend – Thursday, July 4 - Sunday, July 7, 2013 – with proper identification. Dependents of service personnel visiting the Zoo will receive a 50% discount off the Zoo’s general admission with proper identification for themselves and up to three guests.
