National Ice Cream Day

Date: July 20, 2013 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
On Saturday, July 20, 2013 the first 500 guests through our gate starting at 9am will receive a free 3.4 oz sample cup of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream and a coupon for “Buy 3 get 1 Free” ice cream novelties at any of the Zoo snack bars that day, courtesy of our ice cream novelty provider Arctica Frozen Solutions. There is a great conservation message in this event, too. Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, a Unilever product, is made with palm oil sourced from RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) certified providers. Non-sustainable palm oil farming is one of the activities putting many species at risk, including one of the Zoo’s most prominent species, the Malayan Tiger.
