Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration at the Zoo

Dates: 1/16/2021 - 1/18/2021
Times: January 16 and January 18

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a transformative figure for us all.  We honor his legacy at the Little Rock Zoo each day as we work to make our world a better place for all species-animal and human.  As a tribute to his work, on January 18, we will collect socks to benefit Jericho Way, an organization helping the homeless.  Your donation will grant you $2 off admission per family. For his celebration, we are inviting all Zoo guests to participate in a Dr. MLK, Jr. quote scavenger hunt.  Scavenger hunt information will be available at the ticket gate. We will also have a inspirational craft available for all on January 16.
